Bangladesh, situated in the Indian Ocean on an area of 150,000 square meters with about 160 million inhabitants, is among the countries with the highest density of population in the world. Bangladesh became independent in 1971. In 1947 the territory was called "East Pakistan." Approximately 98% of Bengalis speak the official language, Bengali. Most of the inhabitants are Muslim. The written Bengali consists of a mixture of alphabet and writing syllable, which is also used in some parts of India.
The "Bangladesh Post Office" has its headquarters in the capital Dhaka, and is submitted to the ministry of post, telecommunications and information technology. The latter was founded in 2014 as a result of the parliamentary elections of 2012. Its task is to put the sector directives within the two departments into practice. In addition to classical postal services, the "Bangladesh Post Office" from 2010 also offers the "Electronic Money Transfer Service" (in short EMTs), an electronic transfer system, which because of the increased requirement today is offered in one or more rural areas.
ZIP codes in Bangladesh
From an administrative point of view, Bangladesh is divided into eight units (Divisions), which are also divided into 64 districts (Districts). The eight divisions in Bangladesh are: Barishal, Chittagong, Dhaka, Khulna, Maimansingh, Rajshahi, Rangpur and Sylhet. The ZIP codes consist of four digits, and are assigned to the various districts respectively to the administrative units.
Normally, the word "thana" in South Asia indicates a police station. The concept can also be extended to certain areas controlled by a police station. In this "Thana" sense indicates a subcategory of the district. Therefore, the 64 districts of Bangladesh are divided into 490 units (called sometimes "upazilas"). Comparable to this concept is for example the "district" in Germany.
