Transparency International, Bangladesh on Thursday disclosed this finding emerging from a study on the RMG sector.
Eight-storey Rana Plaza, which housed several garment factories, collapsed on Apr 24, 2013, leaving at least 1,129 people, mostly garment workers, dead and over 2,500 injured.
One-fifth of the workers now face the risk of losing jobs, it said.
TIB published the report, titled ‘Steps taken for establishing governance in RMG sector: Review of one-year progress’ at its office in Dhaka.
It said the irregularities and corruption in the garment sector was due to a lack of coordination among the government and other relevant authorities, negligence of duty, and political interference.
TIB found that though 95 percent of factories offered salaries as per the structure fixed by the government but the payment was not regular.
