Dinajpur is located in the north of Bangladesh. Poor people migrate permanently from far north where resources are scarce to this city for livelihood. As a result, many low-income communities can be found in the city. Long ago, people started to live on the abandoned land of Hindu owners who had left Bangladesh and migrated to India. Now, the land considered as government land. Though they got the advantage of living on a land from the past owner, living quality is considerably low. In the slums, people living together in a congested way and they can’t afford to build better. Although these communities are within municipality facilities like drain, electricity, water point etc. are not adequate. There are around 20 slums within the city.
