Description

This resettlement plan prepared by Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB) for Tranche 2 of the Power System Expansion and Efficiency Improvement Investment Program in Bangladesh contains an assessment and measures, as well as time-bound actions and budgets, for the project components which have involuntary resettlement. This document represents a key requirement of ADB and will constitute the basis for land acquisition, compensation and resettlement.

PGCB proposed thirty-seven subprojects for Tranche 2 which included components to evacuate power that would be generated by the upcoming power plants at Ghorasal. In addition, the improvement in power transmission facility will strengthen the power supply stability, reliability and transmission capacity in the eastern side of Dhaka city, to the north-east of Dhaka (Gazipur and Naryanganj), and the core areas of Chittagong and Sylhet.
