Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today inaugurated “Bhumi Bhaban” in the capital’s Tejgaon area to make it as “one-stop-service” hub for land related services.
To facilitate a hassle-free service to the people, all the offices related to land now will be accommodated under the rooftop of this Bhaban, reports BSS.
“People shouldn’t be harassed; people shouldn’t be subjected to suffering; rather we wanted to make arrangements of bringing land services at their hands, keeping in mind that they (people) are not needed to go door-to-door for it,” she said.
She said this while inaugurating Bhumi Bhaban (Land Building) and other development activities as the chief guest.
Earlier on 18 September 2014, during her visit to the Ministry of Land, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina directed all the concerned departments and agencies to come under one roof and take steps to provide one-stop service to the people.
To comply with her directives, an initiative was taken to construct a land building complex with a cost of Taka 184 crore to house all the offices and agencies under the Ministry of Land.
The Land Reform Board, Land Appeal Board and Land Records and Survey Department under the Ministry of Land were located at different places in Dhaka city.
Now, the newly constructed 13-storey building with two-basement having 32,200 square metre spaces will be the house of these offices to ease the process of land related services.
A day-care center has also been set up at the Bhumi Bhaban Complex for the convenience of working women. Also, the building is equipped with a sewerage treatment plant system.
In addition, a Bangabandhu Corner and Mural of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman have been set up in the complex.
The Prime Minister this morning also inaugurated Upazila and Union land office buildings, online payment system of land development tax and land data bank at the opening ceremony in the capital’s Osmani Memorial Auditorium.
