ABSTRACT

The article reflects the intensity of disparity in utility infrastructure development in Bangladesh. The disparity in utility infrastructure development remains in an alarming zone inspite of having considerable concern of government and development related authorities. Using the Gini Index and Lorenz Curve techniques, the paper examines the inter-district disparity in developing the selected four utility infrastructures. The paper also finds the intensity of disparity in sense of the quantity of the existing infrastructure services where the Gini Index shows it mathematically and the Lorenz Curves show it graphically. The paper concludes with the Gini Index and its implications in regional planning as well as the policy recommendations that might provide policy makers with the possible ways of finding the opportunities to alleviate regional disparity.
