Throughout the year their dedications to quality and diligence in remaining technically astute have been the key ingredients of their success in several clients’ engagements.

- 1. Preamble of REHAB:
Urbanization is an outcome of both population growth and rural-urban migration. As urbanization increases, more and more people are becoming city dwellers. Bangladesh is not any exception to that picture. The ever-increasing urban population is catering an increasing demand for shelter. The right of shelter is a fundamental right, which is ensured by both the declaration of United Nation (UN) and the constitution of Bangladesh. But it is very difficult on the part of the government of Bangladesh alone to ensure housing for all. Here comes the need of private sector real estate development.
It is a recognized fact that the health of the Real Estate Development Sector is the barometer of the National economy. In Bangladesh Real Estate Business started in Dhaka in late seventies. During 1970s there were fewer than 5 companies engaged in this business. In 1988 there were 42 such developers working in Dhaka and now in 2012 there are more than 650 companies engaged in this business.
2.1. Formation of REHAB:
With the number of companies increasing gradually, various problems concerning the housing sector cropped up requiring early solution. At this stage it was necessary to form a trade association of the Real Estate developers to protect the overall interests of the sector. To strengthen the role of real estate sector Real Estate & Housing Association of Bangladesh (REHAB) was formed with only 11 members in 1991. The objective of REHAB was to promote formal private sector Real Estate Development in Bangladesh.
2.2. Present Performance:
REHAB is the only trade organization of Real Estate Developers with a current membership of 422 Developers. All major institutionalized Developers are members of this organization. REHAB is also the “A Class” member of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI). In the recent years REHAB has played a very significant role in nation building through Real Estate Development by its members. The members of REHAB contribute a large amount of revenue to the Government exchequer in terms of Registration Cost, Income Tax and Utility Service Charges.
REHAB organizes its most colorful annual event REHAB Housing Fair each year in Bangladesh for the member developers, financial institutions and building material providers. It has already successfully completed eleven Housing Fairs during 2001 to 2011 at Different places in Dhaka City. To foster the growth of Real Estate Sector REHAB plans to organize Housing Fair abroad for the Bangladeshi individuals who are living different countries of the World to buy apartment, land and commercial spaces in their home country. Accordingly, the first – ever Housing Fair abroad organized by REHAB on August 2004 at Quality Hotel Hempstead, 80 Clinton Street, New York, USA.

6. CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION:
After analyzing the business of whole Real Estate sector in Bangladesh it is very clear that the number of competitors for Naishargic properties Ltd. are huge. That’s why it is not very easy for the company to make the business financially and profitably stable without extra efforts in business promotion and extra ordinary features and services. The offer from Naishargic Properties Ltd. should be extra ordinary and something new. Definitely there need to have specific advantages for the buyers. So that they will find Naishargic properties Ltd. better than others. Service is important specially to make the references strong. Clients will bring clients.

Just Need to go for aggressive promotion with attractive offer to reach to the buyers. I strongly believe that time is not a far away for NPL to have its position on the top.
Not only Naishargic properties Ltd. also every business organization is looking for a vision that is profit. Because without profit a company will not be able to run. Once upon a time it will be wordless & unsuccessful. The continuation of achieving the vision is a very important thing which is the central target and maintains and organizes the company’s whole staffs & officials. But it is not a very easy task for the companies. The top Real Estate and Multinational companies running in our country are doing a lot to achieve their goals.
