Initiatives Implemented

The department takes pride in commissioning many of the above initiatives. In order to ensure ease of doing business, the process of site certification is already introduced since July 2016. The owner of the land can secure an authenticated certificate of the buildable potential of his /her land without hiring any professional agencies. The common/native land owner is, thus, saved of the agony of involving 'third parties' in estimating understanding the development potential of his/her land. The land transactions between private parties shall, thus, be based on a very transparent understanding of buildable potential of land defined in the PMRDA's Site Inspection Certificates. Incidentally, these site visit inspection certificates shall be the prerequisites while submitting application for development permissions thereby leading to 50% saving in time for processing to development proposals. Necessary online facilities are also introduced in this regard.

In line with the RERA,2016 AND MOFA 1963 requirements of the Central and State Government respectively, the PMRDA has started the process of estimating the ultimate development potential of lands while granting development permissions to Master Plans.

The buildings covered in the Master Plan can be sanctioned phase wise through a 'Single Window System' upon the payment of challan toward the development charges/premium of the ensuring construction. Revision of Master plan is such cases shall not be mandatory henceforth. The area / FSI statement shall be modified through the single window clearance system.

Many more initiatives such as online submission and scrutiny of plan through (intelligent) iDCPR software is under the development stage, and shall be commissioned in coming two months.
