Two Dhaka city corporations directed to reassess holding tax: Tazul


SANGSAD BHABAN, Feb 13, 2020 (BSS) – Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives Minister Md Tazul Islam today informed the parliament that
Dhaka south and north city corporations have been directed for reassessing the holding tax through online-based automation system.

The newly attached areas to the two city corporations have also been
brought under holding tax reassessment, he said while replying to a starred
question made by treasury bench lawmaker AKM Rahmatullah in the House here
with Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury in the chair.

Responding to another starred question made by treasury bench lawmaker
Benjir Ahmed, Tazul said the Dhaka Water Supply and Sewerage Authority
(DWASA) is implementing a project for changing all old water supply pipelines
launching DMA through trenchless technology to resolve the problem of water
pollution through the pipelines.

The LGRD minister, however, said the DWASA is supplying pure water
throughout the Dhaka south and north city corporations’ areas.
