Now, get online building plan for up to 500 sqm plot

New Delhi: Now, the residents of Delhi having up to 500 square metres plot will not have to roam around corporation offices for their building plan sanction as the three corporations launched an online module for sanction of building plans up to 500 sqm. Earlier the permitted limit for building sanction plan on self certification was 105 sqm.

The move was announced after the final approval of Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal who, on Tuesday, launched the online module to sanction building plan for low-risk residential buildings under "Unified Building Bye-Laws 2021".

According to SDMC circular under Ease of Doing Business (EODB) reforms, a large number of reforms have been carried out by the SDMC (Nodal Corporation). To bring back the transparency and ease to the public, SDMC developed the online module.

An SDMC circular read that through this module fresh building plans of the residential properties upto 500 sqm (expect the properties situated on notified commercial, MLU, PSS roads and the areas in which NOC from any external agency like DUAC, DMRC, AAI, ASI, Railway, HCC, Forest, etc) maybe sanctioned by the architect, engineer in accordance with their qualification and competence specified in UBBL-2021 with the clear stipulation that consequences, responsibility, if any, on account of erroneous sanction shall be exclusory borne by architect and engineer.

Baijal advised the three MCDs to strive for modernising their operation using technology for different municipal functions like waste disposal, parking management, property tax collection, town planning, etc. LG Delhi also tweeted about the intiative "Launched Online Module for Sanction of Building Plans upto 500 sqm by @SDMC_Official, @NorthDmc & @EDMC10946637. Residents can now get plan approved on self certification basis. It will bring transparency & reduce human interface. A very good initiative, my best wishes!," he tweeted.

The LG advised the corporations to minimise human interface by automating processes wherever possible to deliver citizen-centric services in line with Prime Minister's clarion call to promote digital delivery of services – "Maximum Government, Minimum Governance". SDMC Commissioner Gyanesh Bharti said, "This is a very good step which will bring transparency and it will also help

people to get sanction within a time-bound manner. It will give more ease to the public for the issuance of construction permits."

He further added that the construction permits can be applied online by using 'Common Application' form. SDMC has also developed a dashboard to provide the latest status of each case. All payments can be made online and calculations can also be done with the help of an online calculator.
