TAKING A cue from the district administration the Indore Development Authority (IDA) has decided to hold samadhaan (solution) camps for disposing applications the same day they are received.
Applications pertaining to lifetime lease rent payments, building permission, no-objection-certificates for mortgaging buildings or plots, clearance of outstanding dues and change of address etc will be cleared within 24 hours under the new dispensation.
“The single window clearance system and online samadhaan has helped cut down delays to a large extent. However, there are certain tasks like NOC and building permission certificates for which residents were forced to make repeated trips to the IDA office”, Chairman Madhu Verma pointed out.
Now, we are moving to expedite these tasks on the same day through a series of samadhaan camps, he added. A proposal is also underway to waive the charges levied on those applying for building permissions and spot issuance of dues statements, revealed the IDA Chairman.
The move, it may be noted, is part of a series of moves by the Authority brass to speed up clearances. The IDA recently mooted a proposal to make lease rents payable at all 14 branches of Union Bank to cut down on processing time.
The Authority has also decided to convert low-income leased plots to freehold to reduce the last minute rush for lease rent payments.
