Realtors on Tuesday said that the Anti-Corruption Commission should not create panic in the society through issuing letters seeking information on individuals’ assets rather the commission should apply method to eliminate corruption of the government offices.
In a press conference on silver jubilee celebration at Sonargaon Hotel in the city, the leaders of the Real Estate and Housing Association of Bangladesh said that instead of creating panic among the investors the ACC should block all the ways to earn money through corruption.
REHAB president Alamgir Shamsul Alamin said that due to panic capital flight from the country to abroad was taking place.
‘Even the honest people now-a-days are in fear to invest money in the real estate sector as the anti-corruption commission is sending on an average three letters to the REHAB seeking information on individuals about their real estate assets,’ he said.
Alamin said that the real estate sector has been passing through a tough time for last couple of years and the development of Dhaka city witnessed a slow pace due to the crisis in the sector.
He blamed the restriction on cash flow by Bangladesh Bank in the name of curbing inflation as one of the causes for the crisis in the real estate sector.
To celebrate the silver jubilee of the trade body Alamin announced programmes including
rally, folk fest, drawing competition, view exchange and receptions to the distinguished personalities.
At the press conference, senior vice president of REHAB, Nurun Nabi
Chowdhury announced the vision of the trade body for 2041.
He said that now the 20th -25th floor is the sky line of Dhaka city and the level would be 60th-70th floor in 2041.
Before 2041 the REHAB would develop and handover 10 lakh flats to the people and 90 per cent of city people would live in flats and would enjoy some common facilities, Nurun Nabi said.
REHAB vice Presidents Liaquat Ali Bhuiyan, Abul Fatah M Ahkam Ullah Iman Khan, Sardar Monammad Amin and Mohammad Sohel Rana attended the press conference.
