The Delhi government on Monday notified new building bylaws, which now permit construction on residential plots of up to 105 square metres without getting the building plans cleared.

“Residential plots of size up to 105 square metres are not required to obtain sanction of building plans,” an official statement said.

With the new bylaws that have been changed after 33 years, the owners only need to submit an undertaking about the construction along with requisite fees and other documents to begin construction.

“The local bodies have to grant the permission within 30 days,” the statement said, adding: “Building with built up area between 20,000 to 150,000 square metres will now get environmental clearance from urban local bodies.”

The new bylaws also allow the applicant to just fill one centralised online form, and the application would automatically be forwarded to the agencies concerned like the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, Delhi Jal Board, fire department, and others, the statement added.
