Since 1985, Uttaran, an NGO, has been striving to establish the rights of poor people in the South-West regions of Bangladesh. During the operation of this development project, Uttaran has observed that providing the poor with productive elements can help eliminate poverty to a great extent. With the ownership of productive elements, their sources of income become multifarious. The productive element-the small piece of land-changes their social, cultural and psychological behavior. Statistics show that there are about 33lac acres of khas land in Bangladesh. Due to the legal bindings these land cannot be distributed among the landless

people. For this UTTARAN SALE project has organized this workshop called Sources of Khas Land, legal bindings for its distribution and Suggestions.
