Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC), in three separate drives, have knocked down illegal establishments at Karwan Bazar, Farmgate, Uttara, Khilkhet, and Mirpur areas.

The drive to free up footpaths and roads at Karwan Bazar area started around 11am on Monday. 

The team, led by DNCC Executive Magistrate Md Sajid Anwar, evicted more than 300 establishments from the rice depot, fish depot, and alongside rail lines. 

They also removed more than 500 establishments from the roads between Farmgate to Indira Road area, and bulldozed more than 52 shops at the rice depot area.

DNCC officials said, they had evicted illegal establishments from Kathpatti, and Kamarpatti area recently, but grabbers again made makeshift establishments there. 

Monday’s drive was meant to recover those areas.    

On September 26, an eviction drive was conducted at Tejgaon rail crossing area as well.

DNCC officials said, in 2002-2003 those shops were rented out on temporary basis to leaseholders, and the lease was scrapped in 2007-2008. Since then the shop owners have been illegally running businesses there. 

Officials said that they are to continue the drives until every illegal shop is evicted.

Meanwhile, DNCC Executive Magistrate SM Shafiul Azam led a team to block A of Mirpur section 6 that evicted 87 illegal structures. The magistrate imposed Tk2.20 lakh in fines in two cases on charges of keeping construction materials on roads, and footpaths.

In Uttara sectors 9 and 10, and Khilkhet Kitchen Market, DNCC executive magistrates Md Abdul Hamid Mia, and Julkar Nayon conducted drives, and evicted 650 establishments from footpaths, and roads. Fines of Tk48,000 was paid by offenders for running businesses without a trade licence.
