The land of Capital Smart City falls in the district (Mauza) Chahan and Mandwal which comes under the jurisdiction of Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA). In 2018, Capital Smart City had received the final No Objection Certificate (NOC) from RDA for the first phase. Click here to see the list of approved housing societies under RDA.
After receiving the NOC, the society held the first successful balloting event in December 2019 where over 6,000 members of phase 1 of Overseas and Executive blocks were allotted plot numbers. The next balloting event is expected by the end of this year.
The most anticipated milestone of Capital Smart City’s development is finally here. Capital Smart City has announced the possession dates of Overseas Block 1.
Overseas block-1 was launched in early 2018. This block received extra fame and love from the market as it accompanied the news of being the first block to get possession. The management had announced that Overseas District 1 will get possession in mid 2020. However, it got delayed due to COVID-19 and the new rumor was the end of this year.
Capital Smart City has finally announced the possession schedule for Overseas Block-1. The possession will be handed over sector-wise. Sector A of Overseas block-1 will get possession in December 2020. Every month until April 2021, sectors B to E will also be given possession one by one. See the schedule in the table below:
|Sector||Possession starts from||Dues cleared up to|

|C||February 2021||31 Jan 2021|
|D||March 2021||28 Feb 2021|
|E||April 2021||31 Mar 2021|
In addition to Overseas-1, some sectors of Executive Block-1 will also be given possession by December 2020. Since Sector A is consists of grand commercial area, the residential Sector B will be given possession in December 2020.
Executive block was launched in May 2019 with the promise of early possession. While the payment plan is of 3 years, possession is being given after one and a half (1.5) year which shows that all members of Capital Smart City will get possession within 3-4 years from the date of purchase.
|Sector||Possession starts from||Dues cleared up to|
|A||Grand Commercial Area|
|B||December 2020||30 Nov 2020|
In order to get possession, members need to clear all outstanding dues before the deadline and pay the Development Charges, Extra Land Charges and Prime Location Charges in four quarters, starting from the time of possession.
Capital Smart City is a large scale housing project spanning over more than 55,000 kanal of land. The project is divided into three main blocks, called Overseas block, Executive block and Harmony Park block. The newly launched block, called Overseas Prime, forms the fourth block.
In each block, there are commercial and residential plots of various sizes along with constructed villas available on easy installment plans. Over all, the commercial plots range from 2.5 marla to 8 marla in size while residential plots range from 3.5 marla up to 2 kanal in size. The details of each category are as follows:
As already mentioned, the size of residential plots ranges from 3.5 marla to 2 kanal. Currently, the society is offering 3.5 marla, 5 marla, 7 marla, 10 marla, 12 marla, 1 kanal and 2 kanal residential plots. The plots are available on easy installment plan of 3 to 3.5 years.

The commercial plots of Capital Smart City have gained great hype in the real estate market of Islamabad since launched in 2018. The first batch of commercial plots of 4, 6 and 8 marla were launched in mid 2018. The commercials of 4 and 8 marla were taken by the investors very enthusiastically.
Today, these plots are selling at huge profits up to Rs. 10 lacs. The following table presents the list of various sizes available in the project along with basic details.
|Size||Block||Price Range||Profit Range||New Booking|
|2.5 marla||Harmony Park||Rs. 350,000+||Limited Inventory|

In addition to plots, Capital Smart City also offers fully finished housing options with various options for customization. Under the category of constructed houses or villas, there are two different products called “Smart Villas” and “The Villas.”
1. Smart Villas offer fully finished villas of 5 marla, 10 marla and 1 kanal with ultra-modern finish and smart home features that your heart has always desired.
In today’s busy lifestyle, everyone is looking for ready-to-use products whether it is a small purchase such as clothes or a huge one like your home. Smart Villas by Capital Smart City provides the perfect housing solution for people who are living abroad or otherwise cannot take part in the construction of their own house.

2. The Villas offers villa apartments of 3.5 and 5 marla instead of the whole villa. The Villas in Harmony Park was launched in May 2020 offering more affordable housing options.
While Smart Villas are catered towards more high-end consumers, the society has found a perfect solution of modern day urbanization by introducing Villa Apartments of 5 marla and 3.5 marla.
If you don’t feel like buying the whole villa, you can purchase just one portion at easy installments of 4 years with the exact same quality.
It is expected that Capital Smart City will also launch apartments on installment plan of 3 to 4 years. Stay tuned for updates!
The project is divided into three main blocks, called Overseas block, Executive block and Harmony Park block.
Launched in September 2020, Overseas Prime is a purpose-built premium block designed specifically for overseas Pakistanis aiming to provide the luxurious neighborhood that they are used to in their experience outside Pakistan.
Residential plots from 7 marla to 40 marla (2 kanal) are available for booking with 50 feet wide streets, 180 feet wide Smart Boulevard (300 including service roads) and a dedicated entrance from Chakri road just near the Ring Road Interchange.

Overseas block of Capital Smart City is reserved for overseas Pakistanis or expats. Because of its world-class facilities and prime location, overseas block has been the most demanded unit of Capital Smart City. Launched in January 2018, overseas block of Capital Smart City has been a great investment opportunity for overseas Pakistanis as it is especially designed to meet the living standards of foreign residents. Furthermore, overseas block will be the first to get possession.
Why is the location of overseas block considered ideal? It is speculated that Overseas block will be the closest to the main entrance at the dedicated interchange of M-2 motorway. This is also confirmed by the latest master plan of Capital Smart City released in December 2019. However, the exact and final location of the interchange has not been revealed yet. Nevertheless, Overseas block is adjacent to the Main Boulevard and closest to the Lake.
Booking. In order to book a commercial or residential plot in Overseas block, the applicant needs to present with the proof of foreign residence to prove the overseas status. However, the overseas block files can be resold to local residents as well.
Balloting of about 6,000 plots of Overseas-1 has been done and plot numbers have been allotted. The development of Overseas phase 1 is happening very rapidly. It is expected that Overseas-1 will be given possession within a year. Click here to download the master plan of Overseas block phase-1, released at the time of first balloting in December 2019. If your residential or commercial plot was included in the first balloting, you can view the results here.
Moreover, booking in Overseas phase 2 was closed on 22 July 2020. The society has announced the deadline of booking all residential and commercial plots in Overseas-2.
It is expected that the date of next balloting will be announced very soon after the deadline of booking in Overseas-2.
After overseas block had gained its due popularity, Capital Smart City launched Executive block in early 2019 to offer the exact same facilities to the local residents of Pakistan. There were no new bookings for this block. When launched, non-overseas members were asked to submit certain dues on their respective files in order to be included in Executive block. This basically meant that they will get possession earlier than non-Executive members.
Before the first balloting event, FDH gave another opportunity to non-overseas members (general block – more on that later) to convert their plots into Executive Block by submitting upto 50% of the dues in order to be included in the first balloting.
Executive block is also divided into two phases. The first balloting of Executive phase 1 has been done for about 6,000 plots in December 2019.
The development of phase 1 is under progress. It is expected that Executive phase 1 will be given possession after Overseas-1. The master plan of Executive block phase-1 was also released at the time of first balloting, held in December 2019.
It is expected that the date of second balloting will be announced very soon after the deadline of booking in Overseas-2.
Where is General Block?
A common misconception is the existence of General block in Capital Smart City. If you look at the master plan, you would notice that there is no general block.
The name general block was adopted when Overseas block was launched. The plots that were not in Overseas were named as General block in the market. However, the society did not support the name “General” and launched Executive block a few months after Overseas block was launched.
Thus, all files that were not Overseas, will eventually be included in Executive block even though initially the society told members to convert to Executive by submitting certain dues.
Capital Smart City has launched Harmony Park block, in April 2020, with a more affordable range of products including plots and villas. With the launch of the smaller sized commercial and residential plots in Harmony Park, the large scale and iconic housing project has become accessible by everyone.
Capital Smart City has launched 3.5 and 5 marla villa apartments under the name The Villas in the newly launched Harmony block, in April 2020. The Villa Apartments are reasonably priced with monthly installment as low as Rs. 23,000.
The new block called Harmony Park also includes 3.5 marla residential plots. The 3.5 marla plots were launched at a price of 15 lac (Rs.1,500,000) while the monthly installment was just Rs.14,300. Due to overwhelming response by the market, the company increased the list price to Rs.16.5 lac and then further to Rs.17.89 lac.
The current booking price of the 3.5 marla residential plot is 17 lac and 89 thousand rupees (Rs.1,789,000) with the monthly installment of Rs.17,000 approximately. Check out the details of the 3.5 marla residential plots by Capital Smart City.
The deadline for booking the 3.5 marla residential plots in Harmony Park block is 22nd July 2020.
After the success of smaller sized residential plots in Harmony Park, 2.66 marla commercial plots were also launched at a price of Rs. 4,680,000. The dimension of the 2.66 marla commercial is 20′ x 30′ with an area of 600 sqft.
The launch of 2.66 marla commercial plots took many investors by surprise when the newly launched plots were selling at a profit of Rs. 300,000 within hours of being launched. Many wondered if there was a black market in place or something fishy was going on.
