The recurrence of earthquakes in recent years is a signal for major earthquakes. That Bangladesh lies in the active earthquake zone is not unknown to Bangladeshis. The recurrence of earthquakes during recent years is considered as a signal for major earthquake. Experts are paying more attention to the issue of earthquakes in recent times because they believe that the recurrence of quakes in recent years is a signal for a major earthquake. RAJUK is responsible for the development of the capital city, Dhaka. The two schools of thought differ in respect of a major earthquake. One school believes that the recurrence of quakes in recent years should be taken as a signal for a major earthquake but the other school believes that it should not be amplified so seriously. The possibility of a major earthquake in Bangladesh has not been ruled out by both the schools of experts. ‘Fault lines’ mean structural defects of the earth. At the time of the shaking of the earth, the land sometimes breaks down in some places. These lines of breaks are called fault lines.

The opinion of one school of expert’s comprising engineers and geologists is that the recurrence of quakes in recent years should be taken as a signal of a major earthquake in Bangladesh. The buildings of Dhaka are not safe at all in the event of an earthquake, became most of the buildings did not follow earthquake resistant budding cede. The experts are alarmed because of the recurrence of earthquakes in the recent years. RAJUK believe that an earthquake resistant building code should be developed to reduce the losses.
