Environmental Impacts of Real Estate Project at Pallabi Eastern Housing Area in Dhaka City, Bangladesh
Keywords:Housing sector, Socio-economic, Developer, Land, Government
Dhaka is the capital city of Bangladesh. Many people are migrating day by day. For their survival, the housing sector is being flourished day by day. The demand impacts the supplies. A number of people are doing housing business to support the situation, but on the contrary, they are grabbing a lot of green fields or water bodies from private properties and evacuating the owners. One of the ill examples is the Eastern Housing Pallabi 2nd Phase Project. The study aims to find the socio-economic status of the land owners and local inhabitants evicted from their land for the project. Concurring to the essential perception and data collected from diverse sources, roughly 350 families are migrated. Of The 45 relocated people placed under survey from the questionnaire survey by snowball sampling, it was found that most people were discovered to have been physically relocated from their original location. The income level, housing situation, and utility infrastructure are poorer than before the resettlement. They are too unaware of taking action against the developer for the deprivation in the land price. The research revealed various facets that shed light on how land developers abused the local population. Land developers, local oligarchs, local politicians, and locals were the four characters who actively participated in this relocation process and played various roles. A few scopes are identified to rehabilitate the victims to recover from their present situation. Government should adequately care about the reallocated people to compensate at the present rate considering the long period of suffering. There is scope for more intensive study on the topic.
