‘Graft in land acquisition to be dealt stringently’

SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT, Dhaka

Corruption in land acquisition process is one of the major obstructions to country’s development and the government has decided to suppress such irregularities strictly, said Land Minister Saifuzzaman Chowdhury at a regular cabinet meeting in Dhaka yesterday.

He also informed the cabinet about various government schemes to bring transparency in land acquisition and compensation system.

The minister instructed the concerned authorities to pay compensation money to claimants after the issuance of notice under Section 8 regarding land acquisition.

Besides, the minister reiterated that no manual application for land mutation would be accepted from March 17 this year.

Earlier, the land minister spoke on land management, acquisition and survey at the 'Special monthly revenue meeting' held at the Deputy Commissioners’ conference room in Cox's Bazar on Sunday noon.

The development of the district of Cox's Bazar is one of the most important aspects of the overall development of Bangladesh. Four, out of ten of prime minister’s priority projects known as the 'Fast-Track' Program are located in Cox's Bazar district.

These projects are - Matarbari 1200MW Coal Power Plant, Dohazari-Ramu-Cox's Bazar Gundam Railway, Deep Sea Port and LNG Terminal.

Besides, there are many other projects such as the construction of power plants and sub-stations, construction of roads-bridges and approach roads, establishment of economic zones, setting up of tourism parks, establishment of educational institutions and offices of various law enforcement agencies. Alongside this, military bases are being built in Cox's Bazar for national security purposes.

The acquisition process of approximately 15,528 acres of land through 62 LA cases for allotment is currently ongoing in addition to the allotment of government Khas land - which is, indeed, one of the largest land allocation projects for development activities in a single district in Bangladesh.
