Dr Farashuddin said this would help revive the Bangladesh’s fragile housing and land development sector.

The Chairman said a comprehensive health insurance for every government officers and employees has been proposed at Tk 400 as general health premium and Tk 100 life premium. Besides, out of the surplus fund, a 500 bed cardiac hospital would be established.
