Background of the Project
Dhaka Metropolitan city has now been turned into the busiest & densely populated city. People reside permanently in Dhaka city, the capital of Bangladesh for service, business and other purposes. The dwelling places required for these large number of people is very inadequate. As a result, the residential areas of Dhaka city are turning into over-crowded & dirty day by day. It is possible to reduce the pressure of population of Dhaka to a great extent by developing the surrounding area of Dhaka city in a planned way and establishing permanent residence for these vast populations. The total area of the project is 2008.08 acres. The area is low-lying and not suitable for agriculture. Dhaka city is growing fast towards the north, for planned urbanization, it is necessary to extend the city. With this end in view preparations have been made to establish the proposed satellite town. The projected population in the project is more than 6.00 lacs with a density of around 300 persons per acre.
It is possible to reduce the pressure of population of Dhaka city to a great extent by developing surrounding area of Dhaka in a planned way and es-tablishing parmanent residential accomodtion for the vast population.
