The Delhi Government will soon unveil a policy to provide relief to lakhs of Delhiites waiting endlessly to carry out construction of additional floors in residential flats having multiple ownership.

Urban development minister Arvinder Singh said the government was planning to do away with production of a no-objection certificate (NOC) by people having right over the third floor from the other floor owners for expansion of buildings.

Lt Governor Tejendra Khanna in December last year had directed the municipal corporations not to insist on production of NOC for giving approval for construction of third floor if they are satisfied with structural safety of a building and compliance of building bye-laws.

The municipal corporations, however, refused to comply with the directive.
