The cabinet on Monday gave the final approval to the draft of the Special Security Force Act, 2021, and the Highways Act, 2021.

The Special Security Force Act, 2021, which will replace the existing Special Security Force Ordinance, 1986.

“No major change was brought in it (the proposed Special Security Force Act, 2021),” Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam briefed media emerging from a weekly cabinet meeting at the Bangladesh Secretariat.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina chaired the meeting held at the cabinet room of the parliament.

Besides, Anwarul said, the cabinet also gave final approval to the draft of the Highways Act, 2021, in order to have a full-fledged law replacing a century-old small law in this regard.

“There is a law of 1925 (the Highways Act, 1925), which has only five clauses. This is not an adequate law to deal with maintenance, management, and construction (of the highways),” he said.

Anwarul Islam said provisions of punishment have also been kept as well in case of violation of the proposed law.

“The punishment would be maximum of two-year jail or Tk5,000-Tk500,000 fine for breaching the draft law,” he said.

There is no comprehensive highway management law in the country. The law of 1925 was not good enough. So, the proposed law was brought, added the cabinet secretary.
