Other related top-level head offices based in Rawalpindi include the Ministry of Defence Production (MoDP), Joint Staff HQ (JSHQ) and the Army's General Headquarters (GHQ). Air Headquarters (AHQ) and the Naval Headquarters (NHQ) are located in Islamabad.
- Following independence in August 1947 the MoD was based in the newly established capital, Karachi. However, in December 1959 the Ministry of Defence shifted along with the rest of the Pakistani government to the temporary capital of Rawalpindi while plans for Islamabad were drawn up by then-General Ayub Khan's military government. The proximity to GHQ in Rawalpindi played a major role in the decision to relocate the capital.
- In March 1972, President Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in response to criticism over the difficulties in inter-service coordination in previous wars decreed that all service HQs were to move to Islamabad. The Navy was the first to comply, with NHQ moving from Karachi to Islamabad 1974, while Air HQ moved from Peshawar to an adjoining sector in Islamabad in 1983.
- Following two failed assassination attempts in Rawalpindi, President Pervez Musharraf mooted plans in 2004 for GHQ, JSHQ, MoD and MoDP to finally follow suit with the construction in Islamabad of a massive new Pentagon-style integrated complex to house both ministries and the four service HQs,but this was subsequently cancelled in 2008 on cost grounds following Musharraf's forced resignation.
