Baldia Town (Sindhi: بلدیا ٽائون‎, Urdu: بلدیہ ٹاؤن ‎) lies in the western part of the city with a population of more than 830,000 as per the 2017 census.[1] Baldia Town was formed in 2001 as part of The Local Government Ordinance 2001, and was subdivided into 8 union councils. The town system was disbanded in 2011,[2] and Baldia Town was re-organized as part of Karachi West in 2015.

In 2020, Kemari District was carved out from Karachi West District. So Baldia Town ended up being part of Kemari District.[3][4][5]


It was bordered by SITE Town and Orangi to the east and by Kiamari Town to the north and west, with most of the western boundary formed by part of the RCD Highway.
