The historic Gurdwaras left in Pakistan have tens of thousands of acres of land attached to them which the Pakistan govt leases out for a pittance preventing the proper utilisation of the income by the Sikhs of Pakistan. 

The original Nankana Sahib estate which included the Gurdwaras and other urban properties in the town as well as agricultural land around it was over 17,000 acres in total, some of which had been taken over by the British government for public use such as the land on which the Nanakana Sahib railway station and railway track was built. In 1926 over 16,000 acres passed into the hands of the the Nankana Sahib management committee which included Sikh members from the districts around Nankana Sahib as well as members nominated by the SGPC. This committee was one of the most proactive and forward thinking committee which between 1926 and 1947 built from the income from the Gurdwaras and the lands attached to them the Khalsa College in Mumbai, two schools and a hospital in Nankana Sahib. Other projects they established was the Shaheed Sikh missionary college in Amritsar in memory of the martyrs of Nankana Sahib, as well as Sikh missions in Hapur, Bulandhahar in UP and Kangra (now in Himachal Pradesh)
