Jamshed Town is the largest of the towns in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan and lies in the central part of Karachi.

History

The federal government introduced local government reforms in the year 2000, which eliminated the previous third tier of government (administrative divisions) and raised the fourth tier (districts) to become the new third tier. The effect in Karachi was the dissolution of the former Karachi Division and the merger of its five districts to form a new Karachi City-District with eighteen autonomous constituent towns including Jamshed Town.
