Centre readies single-window clearance for construction sector
The Centre will soon come up with a single-window clearance facility to accord speedy approval for construction of buildings with a maximum time limit of 60 days, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said here on Saturday. He said that seven of the Cabinet ministers, including himself, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan and Environment Minister Anil Dave, had met eight times on this subject.
“We will be having a final meeting with the Prime Minister shortly that will ensure ease of approval for construction of buildings,” he told reporters on the sidelines of a conference by the Builders Association of India here. He said that the plan is to speed up the process to ensure transparency, avoid delay and corruption.
The government has fixed a timeframe of completing the entire process by 60 days so that approvals are given speedily and middlemen are avoided. “By the end of this year, we will be coming out with an ease of approval (framework) and fix the timeframe.”
