Without online application, acid production, import license and renewal of license will not be possible from July 1, said Sharif Mahmud Apu, public relations officer of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

From July 1, the Security Service Division of the Ministry of Home Affairs would “work only on applications received online” for the issue and renewal of acid production and import licenses. Earlier, the application could be made both “manually and online”, the official of the home ministry said on Tuesday. 

From July 1, no applications will be accepted “manually”. No one will get acid production, import license if they do not apply online. They can’t even renew the license, Sharif Mahmud Apu further said.

He added that if the application process is fully online, “more transparency” will come in this case and the speed of work will increase.

The Security Service Division of the Ministry of Home Affairs issues production and import licenses and renews import licenses following the “Acid (Import, Production, Storage, Transport, Sales and Supply) Control Act, 2004”. For this, an application has been made in specific form along with the Secretary of Security Services.

The Security Service Division also said that the new license fee for acid production is Tk 1.5 lakh, import license fee is Tk 1 lakh and license renewal fee is Tk 5,000.
