Mymensingh Divisional Commissioner Md Shafiqur Reza Biswas said Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the father of the nation, has always worked to ensure the land rights of the common man. He waived the rent of land up to 25 bighas. His only goal was the socio-economic development of the people of Bangladesh. The Awami League government has built a digital Bangladesh and has taken initiatives to digitize land management. Arrangements have been made for the people of Bangladesh to call 16122 from home or to receive land services from the website. The divisional commissioner urged any citizen to take the help of these two platforms to get land services.

In order to stop the harassment of the people in land management and to make the related services easily available, the government has already taken various measures to bring the land services to the doorsteps of the people.
