Cancel lease on Chingri Mahal

Land minister asks officials

Land Minister Saifuzzaman Chowdhury directed the officials concerned to take necessary steps to cancel the lease on Chingri Mahal (shrimp pond zone) which was handed over by inheritance on ethical grounds.

He gave the instruction while presiding over a meeting of the National Shrimp Management Committee held at the conference room of the land ministry on Wednesday.  Members of Parliament Shaimum Sarwar Kamal and Jafar Alam, and Land Secretary Md. Mustafizur Rahman PAA were present.

In addition, the land minister ordered introduction of a system to pay revenue online for Chingri Mahal in order to check harassment. He also gave directives to provide DCR right away after revenue collection to alleviate the sufferings of leaseholders.

Besides, Saifuzzaman Chowdhury gave an order to set up an automated verification system to prevent more than one member of the same family from taking lease at the same time.
