5 Lacs Establishments Under DAP, Out of RAJUK Authorization
There are about 5 lacs of establishments around Dhaka that are not listed in RAJUK, by the database of establishments under Detail Area Plan (DAP). Most of these establishments were constructed when Narayanganj, Gazipur, Savar, Ashuliya, Keraniganj & other nearby areas, were included into DAP, after 2010. Number of these establishments is ever growing without their required RAJUK permission. On the other hand, RAJUK is showing excuses that, they do not have enough manpower for proper inspection. Since, only 57 inspectors are appointed for 8 zones. Meantime, they have to take care of many outside matters as well, claims RAJUK. But, 120 more inspectors will soon be added to overcome this problem, assures RAJUK Director Dr. Md. Mosharraf Hossain.
