It is represented in the National Assembly by two constituencies, namely NA-48 and NA-49.HistoryIn 1960, land was transferred from the Rawalpindi District of the Punjab province for the purpose of establishing Pakistan's new capital. According to the 1960 master plan, the ICT included the city of Rawalpindi, and was to be composed of the following parts: Rawalpindi, Islamabad Proper (including the institutional and industrial areas), Islamabad (Margalla Hills) Park, Islamabad Rural Area, However, the city of Rawalpindi was eventually excluded from the ICT on its creation in the 1980s. 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.
