    No we will discuss that here since topic starter needs to look into his own house first before pointing others.

    Isn't return on investment from corpus of the Insurance for Armed Forces Personnel included?

    That would make a good financial sense and a formidable corpus to ensure subsidized housing for personnel at minimal profit and no loss basis and free for the kin of the martyr!

    We have the same being in form of AGIF and AWHO & AFNHB

    Why are Indian courts silent on this massive Rafael scam when French politicians themselves took Modi name in the name with reliance?

    I like the CJP but if DHA/FJF wasn't there the state would have to pay billions every year in veteran welfare.

    Well, is there any law or does constitution ban Army to involve in commercial ventures? If no then CJP question is nonsense. Why do we have to do what other countries does? Army is the only corruption free institution and performance always exceed expectations. Plus due to assholic politicians Army has to get involved in ventures to generate money in order to keep up with external and internal threats.

    Oh, I totally agree about the need for a nodal agency for housing. A service personnel spends half the life away in remote locations and hardly has time to find a dwelling, and what he finds, sometimes has issues of unscrupulous people harassing his family.

    I was trying to understand how do you finance the projects. We have AGIF which is the contributory insurance scheme provided centrally for the Armed Forces Personnel. A pretty good deal. That has a corpus from which, we have funds for looking after martyrs and rehabilitation financing. Also, some fund is utilized to finance the activities of our own AWHO & AFNHB (something akin to your DHA) which operates on the minimal profit no loss basis for ex-servicemen and of course for widows and martyrs as per policy, allocation of the Dwelling unit

    What does it has to do with the topic. Is Pakistan judiciary and civil systems work on comparison to others? Don't you have any order?

    Which country's army never do a surgical strike but keeps claiming it did a surgical strike!!?

    If Pakistan Army did not develop housing for its officers, active and retired, they would have been like other Pakistanis without decent housing to think of.

    Army develops its housing authorities on lands procured from government. It then develops the land with better facilities and plans. Also, if buying and selling of property in army built housing, there is ZERO corruption. So people who properties or land in army housing estates prefer to buy it there. Hence the areas developed by army are always the premium addresses in every city.

    Lets says you buy a plot in Karachi Development Authority scheme. You would not know how many times that plot has been sold. So you might end in legal battle and never build your home. This is will never happen Defense Housing Authority. You buy the plot or property and you are the sole owner.

    You are in for a huge disappointment. Your Indian Army operates and runs numerous golf courses and clubs, and it's increasing, although denied a stake in land and housing schemes. Look it up. : )

    Malaysian army also runs housing schemes. So does Sri Lankan Army, so does Bangladesh Army, Indian Army also attempted same. Enjoy.

    Factually incorrect claims by you.

    1. Golf courses and Clubs are on defence land held under DEO. The Golf courses remain on land earmarked for training and training is held there, irrespective of whatever be the state of maintenance. Even Delhi's Army Golf Course, for example, is training land of Rajputana Rifles Regimental Center.

    2. Clubs include civilian clubs where due to merging of civil population in adjoining areas of Cantonment, civillians pre-dominate by taking Defence Land on lease and some memberships are extended to Defence Personnel who are 'Mess Members' eg Secunderabad Club in Secunderabad Cantonment.

    3. Land is being given by Defence Forces for infrastructure building, and not curtailing it, by taking it over.
