I made an application for UK settlement visa from Dhaka (Bangladesh)

Resolved Question:

I made an application for UK settlement visa from Dhaka (Bangladesh) on 24 January 2014. I have been waiting for the last five months to hear the outcome of my application but did not hear or get a single word from British High Commission based in Bangladesh. I would appreciate it If you could advise me on this matter( i.e. what should I do next?).
Many thanks.

Thank you.

The average processing time for settlement visas is 90 days so it seems there is an issue with your application.

You should submit a complaint about the time it has taken and the fact that you have not heard anything from the British High Commission, see here on information on how to complain:
