Initially, the education zones will be established in Gulshan, Banani and Dhanmondi

Rajdhani Unnyan Katripakkha (Rajuk), the capital’s development authority, is planning to establish education zones in Dhaka to centralize all educational institutions under one system.

“We are planning to found some education zones in Dhaka’s residential areas. Initially, we are thinking of building the zones in Gulshan, Banani, and Dhanmondi,” the Rajuk Chairman Abdur Rahman told the Dhaka Tribune.

However, he said: “We will obviously sit with the stakeholders of the residential areas, experts, and the authorities concerned before finalizing the draft of the education zone policy.”

The Rajuk increased its activities against all kinds of commercial organizations, including hospital and schools—after the attack at Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka’s Gulshan area on July 1, 2016. Twenty-two people, including two policemen, were killed in the attack in Dhaka’s diplomatic zone.

Since the attack, the Rajuk has been conducting several drives against commercial organizations in residential areas. However, they have been lenient towards schools and hospitals as these organizations give essential services to the residents.

Now, schools will also be included in the new policy which is to be enacted for residential area. 

The Rajuk is revising the Detailed Area Plan (DAP), for the upcoming 15 years, which will include dedicated education zones for residential areas.

Md Ashraful Islam, deputy town planner of Rajuk and also DAP’s project director, confirmed that this is planned.

Prominent Architect Ikbal Hahib said: “The residential areas are already losing their character because of illegally-built commercial firms—but educational institutions, hospitals, and food corners are also essential in these areas. 

“So, if these organizations get a dedicated zone then the situation will become better.”
