KARACHI: The Defence Housing Authority (DHA) will contribute in every way to ensure that the vision of DHA City Karachi (DCK) — the first smart city of Pakistan — is transformed into reality, said DHA administrator Brig Muhammad Abdullah on Thursday.
He was speaking at a contract signing ceremony between the DHA and the Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) for the initiation of Integrated Communication Technology (ICT) works aimed towards making the DCK a smart city.

The concept of smart cities envisages developing modern residential localities with well-managed and integrated physical and digital infrastructures to provide optimal services in a reliable, cost effective and sustainable manner while maintaining and improving the quality of life for its residents.
The DHA administrator congratulated the PTCL for becoming a partner of the DHA in developing te first smart city project of the country. He said that the event was yet another landmark towards developing the DHA City as a planned, sustainable and futuristic city of international stature.
Brig Abdullah said that with development of the DCK, residents would enter a new era of modernity and enjoy international living standards.
PTCL CEO and president Walid Irshad said that a foundation has been laid for developing the first smart city in Pakistan with all modern facilities needed for today and envisioned for tomorrow. He revealed that in the DCK, the infrastructure would be laid to meet higher bandwidth requirements of the future smart city, adding that the roadmap for the ICT was based on fiber optic with higher availability of wireless applications like 3G and LTE.
Earlier, the DCK director said the ICT infrastructure will also be used for the management of urban requirements of smart city, such as surveillance, disaster management and e-governance.
