Real estate in Bangladesh
The real estate business in Bangladesh is characterised by a construction boom and an increasing number of high-rise buildings in the major urban centres of the country, in particular Dhaka and Chittagong.
In 1991, REHAB (Real Estate and Housing Association of Bangladesh) was formed with 19 members which had increased to 1,082 members by 2011. In 2000, the National Housing Authority Act was adopted and approved by the national assembly, and subsequently a new body named National Housing Authority was established, dissolving the former state organizations of Housing and Settlement Direction (HSD) and Deputy Commissioner Settlement (DCS). The act came into effect on 15 July 2001.
