Copies of approved building plans, no-objection certificates (NOCs), status of approvals or remarks by various civic authorities for a building project, will soon be a click away. The Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) is all set to put such information and documents online.
The initiative will streamline the process of documentation for all those planning to buy under-construction properties or redevelop their homes. Joint Commissioner Rohit Yadav said the project is part of the second phase of taking MCG services online. Earlier, the issuance of fire NOCs were automated.
“There has been a rise in complaints of builders deceiving flat purchasers, existing tenants or owners by making false claims regarding approved built-up and carpet areas and elevations for under-construction and redevelopment properties. With all information accessible and available at one place, the process will become transparent and less time-consuming,” a senior MCG official said.
MCG officials said potential buyers of under-construction properties or tenants and owners of plots that are being redeveloped would be able to obtain the relevant documents by logging on to the MCG website for building approvals.
On feeding the survey number of the plot, all official documents, approvals, and submissions will be available online for a prescribed fee, officials said.
A senior official said there are plans to incorporate online remarks of civic bodies — on whether the plot was affected by a public reservation — on the same portal. The remarks are mandatory before processing any building project approval.
MCG officials said a company will be selected through a tendering process for the online process. Apart from developing the software, the company would also maintain the same for five years.
