The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) will organise a camp at its office in Sector 34 on February 26 to address issues of residents’ on-the-spot and help them secure building plans and occupation certificates.
The camp will be held from 2-4 pm in the presence of MCG officials. The officials present will address the residents’ grievances and fast-track applications.
“The camp will be highly beneficial for architects and property owners for solving the issues they are facing with regard to their applications. The camp will also aim at speeding up their application process for the issuance of building plans and occupation certificates,” Dr Narhari Banger, additional commissioner, MCG, said.
Banger said that only applications of those whose properties are within the MCG’s jurisdiction will be considered. These include approved colonies, Lal Dora areas and Abadi Deh (inhabited village land).
Applications of people living in Haryana urban development authority (Huda) sectors and areas developed by private builders will not be accepted.
A building plan approval permits residents to go ahead with their proposed construction at a site after officials contend that the structure follows all regulations and laws as listed under building by-laws.
An occupation certificate attests that a building is adhering to all building by-laws and norms and is deemed to be in an appropriate condition for occupancy.
Sudhir Singh Chauhan, senior town planner, MCG, said that the camp will also be beneficial for MCG officials, as it will help them clear over 200 applications and simplify the process of obtaining certificates for residents.
Residents seeking approval of building plans approval welcomed the initiative.
“I faced several difficulties while attempting to fill my building plan application. In the presence of MCG officials, I am hopeful that residents can simplify the application process and clear my queries,” Mandeep Singh, a resident of Sector 47, said.
The officials also said that queries regarding applications for the permission for change of land use (CLU) will be addressed and information regarding town planning schemes of Gurgaon, if needed, will be disclosed during the camp.
