Department of government transportation will set up the factory in assistance with Khulna district administration in a view to repair river transport especially speed boat, double cabin cruiser, different river vessels that usually used by police and RAB.
"We have already handed over the khas land for 99 years lease to the department of government transportation authority on April 17, 2017, said Md. Moniruzzaman, additional deputy commissioner (revenue) of Khulna.
He, however, said that the land ministry has approved the project.
