Building codes being violated in N’ganj

Though a few numbers building illegal portions were bulldozed by Rajdhani Unnyayan Katripakkhya in the last two months in the district, irregularities of construction work are still going on.

Most of the people who construct buildings in the district don’t follow the building code and even ignore the authority concerned notice.

Almost all people of multi-storey buildings expected construction to take the plan approval from the Rajdhani Unnyan Kotripokkhya (RAJUK) but during construction use another map designed by private civil engineers.

To consider the environment safety the RAJUK approved a site map of the proposed building with lawful spaces surrounding the building as fire service and civil defense and all emergency service transport can move easily.

After receiving such kind of approval the land owner keeps off one feet or half feet on four sides, starts construction and completes a multi-story building that is harmful for the environment and people's health. The law of building code is grossly ignored in Narayanganj as the RAJUK zone-8 office has no sufficient manpower to supervise the construction site and take proper measures. According to a building inspector Sameul said that there are two authorized officers, six inspectors and a director who has capacity to supervise all approved site visits duly. RAJUK approved plans for buildings are too helpful to make a planned city with the people's health and other opportunities. As they authority gave a proposed building map with random spaces in all the four sides of the building.

Avoiding the building code random numbers building are constructing and thus tried to contact the director of Narayanganj office Eyah Eya Khan over cell phone but he did not attend the call.
