At the time of establishment of KDA the main function of the Authority was to develop Karachi city. The population of city at the time of establishment was about 1.6 million which has now increased about     22 million hence there is great need to develop more Schemes in the city but the KDA is not a position to play its role as no vacant land is available with KDA for meeting the housing need of Karachi. However, the Authority is doing its best to provide facilities to the citizen of Karachi
