New Karachi Town (Urdu: نیو کراچی ٹاؤن‎) is a town in the northern part of Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. New Karachi Town is located between the Lyari River, the Manghopir Hills and two major roads – Surjani Road to the north and Shahrah-e-Zahid Hussain to the south. To the north and west lies Gadap Town, and to the south lie the towns of Gulberg Town and North Nazimabad Town. The population of New Karachi Town was estimated to be more than 680,000 at the 1998 census. Muhajirs constitute an overwhelming majority of the population.


Pakistan's 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 New Karachi Town.


Fatima Jinnah Colony is named after Fatima Jinnah, the sister of the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah. The neighbourhood of Hakim Ahsan is named after the mayor of Karachi who met Muhammad Ali Jinnah at Karachi airport in 1947. Shah Nawaz Bhutto Colony is named after the father of the former Prime Minister of Pakistan Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and grandfather of the later Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Shah Nawaz Bhutto was the last Prime Minister of the princely state of Junagadh and was instrumental in the accession of the state to Pakistan in 1947. Sir Syed Colony is named after Sir Syed Ahmad Khan who promoted education amongst the Muslims of British India and founded the Aligarh Muslim University in 1875.
