RAJUK, since its inception is working for reducing acute problem of housing as well as expanding civic facilities by developing new townships. The latest one in Keraniganj is under execution.
In 2001, RAJUK officials said, application was called for distribution of plots in Jhilmil residential area. Over 600 people had applied. Of them 20 applications were canceled and finally RAJUK published names of 585 allottees in daily newspapers. Of them around 345 allottes did not withdraw deposit money, so, they need not to apply for plots.
