Only 40 storied, residential flats & commercial complex will be constructed in the 8000 acres city of Ashulia, stated RAJUK. Their initial proposal report already been granted at the Ministry of Housing and Public Works. The ministry asked for the final report, in order to send to the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC). The location of the city will be between, Bipile & Abdullahpur of Savar. Land pirates had been occupying most of this wetland for a long time. RAJUK assures that, they won’t harm the ecosystem or the environment of this area. Out of 8000 acres of land, 5000 acres will be conserved for lakes & ponds. Currently, this area is under the Detailed Area Plan (DAP). But RAJUK fears that, unless they immediate action the whole area will get occupied again. Thus, RAJUK wants to take over the ownership of this land & start their work by next year.
