whiting_monitorIn order to facilitate hassle-free monitoring of building constructions, the Department of Urban Housing and Development (UHD) has directed all development authorities and Urban Improvement Trusts (UITs) to develop an online system.

The directive, which was issued from the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD), is set to put an end to the involvement of town planners and engineers in a particular zone.

Under this system, officials from any zone will be picked up randomly for site checking, as it has been found out that developers bribe officials for carrying out construction work against the approved maps. All the building plans will be uploaded on the site.

Traditionally sites are inspected by respective zonal officials twice and completion certificates are issued only after site visit.

Also, the UHD is in the process of framing laws, which will enable builders to obtain all sorts of clearances including environment under one roof.

As per the World Bank Report 2014, currently there are over 35 kinds of clearances required from various agencies before initiating any new project. Besides getting clearances from the state agencies, the developers in many projects require clearances from Central ministries, including Defence, Civil Aviation, Environment & Forests, Culture and Consumer Affairs.
