    I J Principal Road …. Explained here ….
    100 % Right Information ….

    in 2001 was that when capital was moved to its present location from Karachi in President Ayub’s era, the city of Rawalpindi was made part of Islamabad and was named as ‘J’ Sector of Islamabad. If you look at the map of Islamabad on one side of IJP Road is Rawalpindi while on the other side is all ‘I’s ie I8, I9, I10 etc. Thus this road got its name from being the principal (here ‘principal’ means ‘main’) sectorial road between ‘I’ and ‘J’ of Islamabad.
