HistoryEdit

In 1971 after the Independence of Bangladesh following the Bangladesh Liberation war, Directorate of Government Housing was created. The Central Estate Office in Dhaka, Estate Office in Dhaka, Regional Estate Office in Chittagong and the Rest Houses were merged into the directorate. On 9 November 1983 the four offices were separated and placed in the newly created Directorate of Government Accommodation.[1] It manages the N.A.M. apartments which were constructed for the 2001 Nam (Non-Aligned Movement) conference in Dhaka but now is used to house Members of Parliament.[3] The Directorate manages accommodations for government officers in Dhaka and Chittagong, Bangladesh.[4][5]
