To obtain clearance, BuildCo must present proof of land ownership and the cadastral maps showing the exact site location. An anticorruption drive of the interim government of Bangladesh stemmed from massive violations of building regulations on one hand and collapse of buildings with casualties on the other hand impacted the work of some areas of construction regulation. Obtaining zoning clearance takes on average 2 — 3 months if no bribes are paid, while the time limit by law is 15 days.

45 days no charge

5 Obtain project clearance from the Environmental Directorate

Agency: Environmental Directorate

The Environmental Directorate of Rajuk issues three types of clearances based on the type of establishment: green (nonpolluting), orange (low polluting), and red (high polluting). For the green category, the environmental clearance is issued for a fee of USD 25.00. If unofficial payments are made, the environmental clearance can be obtained in a week. For other categories, the cost and time to obtain a clearance are higher. To obtain a project clearance, the following documents are required, depending on the environmental category:

It is only after receipt of this completion notice that the certificate of conformity can be issued.
