All kinds of the government land in the district of Khas, vested property, abandoned and evacuated has been mostly grabbed by the influential by making forgery deed or without deed.

Though there have found the total amount of Khas land but didn't have available information over the other three kinds of government land.

Hundred years old ponds, canals have also been illegally occupied that have vanished the environmental balance with water bodies in the district.

The government allotted Khas land to the land less people had already been grabbed by a section of tout and land grabbers forcibly by making deed or without any kind of deeds.

Among the grabbers categorically found some people set up industry including brick kilns, commercial factories and residential establishments on the government land.

According to the Narayanganj deputy commissioner office sources  it is learned that  the total 8047.45 acres khas land among those cultivable land is 1018.44 acres and cultivable is 7029.01 acres.

In 1989 the government allotted 50 decimal to 100 decimal lands to each land less people made a kubuliatnama deed and then muted the new lease owner for 99 years.

Kubuliatnama, one kind of deed which was done by deputy commissioner, mentioned 22 conditions to the lease. The lease holder was not permitted to sale the land. Among the 22 conditions in item 8 it was mentioned that the lease holder took permission to the deputy commissioner to construct a house on 8 decimal lands if needed.

However, the local influential as well as land terrorist illegally occupied such lease land giving threat to the lease holder. As it is government land so 

there is no scope to register any deed properly.

Nurul Islam Dewan son of Lal Mia said the Bangladesh Post that the government gave his parents 50 decimal land leases on 12 April 1989 by a kubuliatnama deed no-3553 at the plot no S/A-1013 under Kashipur Mouja of Sadar upazila.

A brick kiln owner named Raza Mia illegally captured his land and when he asked the brick kiln owner to free his land then he threatened him with a different language.

Almost seventy percent land less peoples lease land already had been grabbed by land terrorist in the district, a land less people Harun.

Though the government land grabbed illegally but no land offices of upazila and union level pay heed to save it.

Narayanganj deputy commissioner was contacted in this regard via phone call but he could not be reached.
