Newly-elected president of Real Estate and Housing Association of Bangladesh (REHAB) Alamgir Shamsul Alamin has called on young entrepreneurs to take lead of the sector.

He came up with the view after a meeting with REHAB board members in the capital on Wednesday, said a press release.

Earlier, on Tuesday, the REHAB election board announced names of the office-bearers including him.

Hailing the call of REHAB president, newly-elected REHAB director and Rupayan Group vice chairman Mahir Ali Khan Ratul said the young office bearers will work hard to bring qualitative change in the real estate sector and contribute to ensuring international standard in local housing sector.

About tackling Covid-19, Alamgir said “We cannot avoid pandemic. Bengali nation is brave. We have to fight the adversities. We are ready to face any situation. We along with the workers are giving efforts risking life. I believe to overcome the crisis.”

He hailed the government initiatives of reducing registration fees bringing loan interest to a single digit and said the moves have contributed to improving housing business.

“We are trying our level best to offer dream houses to the people within affordable price. High global price of rod, cement and other construction materials is hampering realtors. Customers always look for large flats. Despite all impediments, we will continue efforts to ensure their dream houses,” he opined.

About REHAB membership, he said the organisation has relaxed its rules to grant temporary membership to the aspirants.

Terming mega gated community city initiated by Rupayan Group time-betting, he said “It is better to construct housing projects outside Dhaka city. In that case, customers will get expected flats at low cost.”

After the board meeting, Rupayan Group vice-chairman greeted REHAB president with a flower bouquet.

Apart from 26 directors in Dhaka, REHAB has got three directors from Chattogram.
