Speaking to the media after a public rally in Mauli Jagran, Bansal said obsolete building bylaws would soon be a thing of the past and efforts would also be made to ensure that consumers were not jolted by the electricity tariff hike.
He agreed that the conversion issue had been hanging fire for several years, but added that the matter was already being looked into and deliberated at different levels.
Bansal agreed that the building and other bylaws were archaic, but assured the residents, traders and industrialists of bringing about a change in the regulations.
Industrialists have been expressing concern over high penalties being charged by the administration.
At present, penalty at the rate of 500 per sq feet per month is levied as misuse charges.
