Background of the Project

Dhaka Metropolitan city has now been turned into the busiest & densely populated city. Lakhs of people reside permanently in Dhaka city, the capital of Bangladesh for service, business and other purpose. The dwelling places required for the large number of people are quite very inadequate. As a result, the residential areas of Dhaka city are turning into overcrowded dirty localities day by day and creating unhealthy environment. It is possible to reduce the pressure of population of Dhaka city to a great extent by developing the surrounding area of Dhaka city in a planned way and establishing permanent residential accommodation for these vast population.
