Savar DOHS was established in the year 2012. It is located adjacent
to National Memorials and Savar Cantonment. Road Nabinogar-Baipail-
EPZ-Chandra runs on the east and road Nabinagor-Dhamrai-Manikgonj-
Aricha runs on the south of the DOHS. Administratively it falls under
Ashulia Thana of Savar Upazila.
The area is approximately 72 acres of land which was used as driving
track and training ground of army. The area was considered for developing
as DOHS in 2009. After completing all necessary formalities government
approval was obtained on 03 June 2012.
The initial master plan had 436 residential plots of 5 kathas (400 Sq
Yards or 3600 Sft) along with 3 Masjid, 2 playgrounds, 3 water bodies,
school and market including number of kid’s zone and green areas. Later
the master plan was reviewed and residential plots were increased to 456
where by playground, water body and Masjid were reduced. With the
recommendation of Savar DOHS Porishod the master plan was once again
reviewed and some changes were made. Now, there are 445 residential
plots along with 3 Masjids, 2 playgrounds, 2 water bodies, school and
market including number of kid’s zone and green areas. The development
