|8.||Chain of Ownership
|:||Bangladesh Tea Board acquired 24 decimals of land from President of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh vide Deed of Transfer No. 8209 dated 22.12.1979.

b) Up to date Municipal tax payment receipt, if applicable.
c) Ground rent receipt up to the current year i.e. 1412 B.S.
|14.||Opinion||:||Upon perusal of the documents/papers, we are of the opinion that Bangladesh Tea Board (the ‘Landowners’) has acquired prima facie ownership over land measuring 24 decimals subject to obtaining mutation record with revenue authority. Bank should ascertain physical possession of the Landowner over the land and documents/papers referred in Clause 13 above should be obtained.
Upon perusal of the ‘Deed of Transfer’ vide which the Landowners have acquired the ownership, it appears that on page 5 it contains a restriction as to the use of the premises by the Landowners only for their sole purpose. Hence, before entering into any arrangement, the Bank should ask the Landowners to obtain permission from the concerned Government Machinery.
We have provided this opinion on the basis of the documents/papers referred to us. We can not guarantee the genuineness of the documents. You may verify the genuineness of submitted documents with the concerned Sub-registry office or concerned authorities.
All papers/documents referred to us are returned herewith.
