Rapid improvement of the living standard of the masses was the prime goal of Bangladesh’s liberation struggle in 1971. The Bangladesh Constitution has enshrined this vision for higher living standards for the masses. The state of Bangladesh through its Constitution (article-15) committed to a higher living standard for its people by providing basic needs to all its citizens through planned development. With this objective of planned development for the country, the Bangladesh Planning Commission was established in January 1972.
