The remainder of the territory is now subdivided into five zones, with Zone I designated to house all residential, industrial and government institutions.Punjab is located to the south of the ICT, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is located to the north west.IntroductionIslamabad was designed and built to be a modern capital for Pakistan.
