Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) fixed the fees of graveyard registration at Taka 500 for general people while it's only Taka 100 for the destitute.
The city corporation fixed the fees after a decision was reached at the 14th corporation meeting of its second council, a DNCC press release said Friday.

In Banani graveyard, Taka 50,000 has been fixed for reburial of each grave, the release added.
