Rapid population growth combined with fast rate of land transfer and land conversion urges for an effective land administration and management in Bangladesh. But the land administration system in Bangladesh is corrupt, inefficient, and unreliable and inherently contains systematic weaknesses. It proliferates and perpetuates the endemic nature of land disputes. Nearly 80 percent of court cases in the rural areas are estimated to be related to land-conflicts. On this background, collective reform measures are inevitable in the existing system to ensure access to land and land related benefits for the citizens. The paper analyzes the present structure of land administration and land management. Then this study attempts to identify the problems and lacunas in this sector. Finally it tends to provide ameliorative recommendations to overcome the same.
