Well here are the pros and cons of both from what i know:
Pros: good security, good quality
cons: too far from Islamabad, not recommended for civilians as society is has a bias of army residents in maintaince when u start living there , big time load shedding some time back it went up to 17 houses daily as dha2 is linked to rawat grid station , poor mobile signals , no commercial area developed yet or near to it
Pros: comparatively near to Islamabad , moderate quality , good access to commercial areas of Islamabad, less load shedding
Cons: comparatively moderate security, less developed than Dha2 for now
This is what I know I will let experts add more points. Now I have heard of this bias in DHA2 for civilians in maintaince other matters when you are a resident there! This is can be a big issue and If someone has more knowledge on this please share!
Well what I have gotten to know from some civilians who lived in DHA that these retired Gens, Brigs, Cols get preferential treatment over civilian residents e.g. electricity lines, water tanker etc related complains and these faujis mostly are not good neighbors too although they mostly are from small villages but they like to complain a lot to the DHA about their neighbors e.g. regarding pets (dogs), night parties, parking, wall seepage etc. related issues and unfortunately DHA is usually unfair in these complains for civilians. Now this is really ironic because civilians usually pay more for the plots in DHA and it is from the money the civilians pay as TAX the faujis get their salary!!
Btw more civilians in DHA than faujis might be the case in DHA Khi not in DHAi 1/2. I guess this kind of attitude is also observed by civilian patients in CMH hospitals! It is really sad! The civilians literally feed them and look what kind of service and treatment they get in the end!
My attention is diverted more towards F-15 as it in Islamabad on the other DHA is also not a bad option but location and money matters any idea how much will a 1 kanal plot cost in f15 and DHA phase 2?
@OKhalid, well I would say different people have different experiences. I have generally found army officers much more refined and gentlemen than civilians.
Army as an institution is developed and disciplined because of their own efforts. if it had been under civilians, Pakistan would have been sold by the politicians 30yrs back... so if army develops something, they should have the first right. If they get privileges on bills and few extra gallons of water, it doesn't matter, because we civilians do pay taxes but we don't put our lives on the line as well in Waziristan, Afghan borders or Siachin.
So if a retired officer gets a plot after years and years of a dangerous job, moving around whole of Pakistan, relocating his family every 2 yrs to a remote unknown destination, its his right to have a peaceful living or special treatment in the end at least.
Most of the people staying in a community like DHA would be major or colonels only, who are generally modest with a hand to mouth lifestyle.
If one thinks DHA is discriminative to civilians and the other says its not or is justified, what's wrong in that? You want to enforce your opinion but don't want to accept counter arguments. If you have the right to make an opinion then why not me or anyone else?
AND this is very much relevant for any prospective buyer to have an opinion on possible neighborhoods. Let's keep it cool.
Here's a piece of advice, just don't believe in anything too Quickly. Enhance reasoning capabilities.
You have point but the bottom line is what ever the faujis do its their JOB to do so! And we pay them for just this! So it does not give them right to discriminate! if you look in other civilized nations. This does not happen even in India the country who defeated our army in all the wars when a general retires from army he just gets a FLAT to live in. It's the civilians who rule in India and get the most respect and that's why India is far ahead of us!
