New Delhi: The process of online sanctioning of building plans of industrial plots by Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), which was earlier limited to residential properties, was kick started here on Wednesday.
Briefing about the scheme, Municipal Commissioner KS Mehra said it is for industrial plots forming part of approved layout plan with fresh construction.
Earlier, the MCD had launched the scheme of sanctioning of building plans for residential properties in November last year.
Mehra said that till date 650 building plans for residential plots have been sanctioned online through the scheme. He said the scheme is being accepted well by property owners and architects.
Giving details of the software being used, Manish Gupta, Additional Commissioner (Engineering) said "the software has been developed in such a manner that it automatically scrutinises the submitted building plans with regard to the building bye-laws and Master Plan norms".
Within one hour, he said, it automatically rebuts to the applicant or architect with errors and deviations in the submitted building plans.
He added that in this system all procedures are hassle- free, without any manual intervention for examination of the building plans as well as charges.
The official website of MCD has a list of architects empanelled online for facilitating owners preparing building plans as per bye-laws. They can also check the status of their application on MCD`s website.
The architects have also been imparted training and guidance regarding sanctioning of building plans online. The facility to deposit the applicable charges online through credit or debit cards has also been extended.
