MetadataShow full item record
Government of Bangladesh provides housing to the people who work for the government. Rental housing facilities are given to all the public servants from higher officials to employees and they can avail these facilities until they reach retirement. For densely populated country like Bangladesh, housing is a crucial problem. Government Housing projects were built throughout Bangladesh to accommodate increasing number of employee. The demand for housing is still high which needs to be fulfilled. Government officers need to hire private house or flats with higher rate or hire sub standard homes. As a result, officers face financial and social problems. This problem often leads to inefficiency and health problems of the Government officers. Considering all these problems, Ministry of Housing and Public Works took the initiative of a housing project for the PWD officers, in Mirpur-6, Dhaka. The idea of this project was to introduce communal spaces inside the housing complex, to promote social interaction. Social interaction helps to build strong bond among people, hence build stronger community. This project aims to diminish the barrier between government housing and the surrounding neighborhood and merge them together forming a community.
