Bangladesh has a population of 164 million as of 2020. Its GDP size is $302.6 billion, and its defense budget is only $3.8 billion as of 2019.

Bangladesh has a hostile relationship with Myanmar and has numerous disputes with India including river water-sharing, border skirmishes, illegal immigration of Bangladeshi citizens alleged by India, illegal Indian citizens working in Bangladesh, religious divide, sandwiched between a tug of war between India and China, etc.

Is the defense budget, and the size and capability of Bangladesh's military consistent with its security requirement?

If not, why is Bangladesh not spending enough or enhancing its defense capability?

Please, explain.
