The town and country planning wing of the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) is expected to organise a camp at its Sector 34 office in the last week of this month, tentatively between February 26-28, for on-the-spot approval of building plans and occupation certificates.
According to officials, the camp will fast track applications of residents and assist the MCG in clearing pendency of applications. On an average, around 200 applications were approved in each camp held previously.
“Such camps are aimed at assisting the public in getting their buildings plans and completion certificates approved in the presence of staff members who can address doubts and grievances of the applicants on the spot. This speeds up the issuance,” senior town planner Sudhir Singh Chauhan said.
MCG officials said they are expecting applicants from the list of 47 colonies that was sent to the state government for regularisation in December 2017, to benefit from the camp.
However, MCG officials did not disclose if localities falling under the ‘lal dora areas’ will be eligible for licences.
The Punjab and Haryana high court is expected to take a call on legalisation of each colony depending on which fall under the ‘lal dora’ areas.
Officials said that the state government has approved 20 colonies so far and applicants can look forward to regularising their properties and get development work done in their areas at a charge of ₹150 per square yard.
Rajesh Kumar, a resident of DLF Phase 2, said, “I intend to construct a house on a plot in DLF Phase 2 and I am waiting for approval of the building plan. I am hoping that the MCG will be able to address the issue during the upcoming camp.”
A completion certificate attests that a property built by an individual or developer complies with the rules and facilities listed under the building by-laws.
A building plan approval is a consent from the municipal corporation to the floor plan of an under-construction building in the body’s jurisdiction.
