Rajahmundry: AP builders are happy lot as they do not have to wait for their building plan to be approved by authorities. This follows a representation to Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu recently in Visakhapatnam by AP Credai seeking his intervention to solve inordinate delay in getting post-approval inspection as well as Occupancy Certificate. A new memo has been issued by the State Government to check delays and facilitate the building process.
In compliance with Ease of Doing Business policy of the Central government, the State Government has issued a memo (No. 800211/H2/2017) to the department of municipal administration and urban development recently. To avoid inordinate delay in the conducting of post approval inspection and issuing of Occupancy Certificate, the State Government has proposed to make changes in its existing procedure of uploading building plans and getting approvals. As per the new procedure, once the building plan is uploaded in AutoCAD and if the plan is in conformity with building by laws approved by the government, the applicant will get a payment advice to get approval for the building plan. Once the payment is made, the plan appr-oval will be given immediately. Now the concerned town planners are supposed to inspect the site and carry out post-approval inspection.
