construction sectorThe government has decided to conclude the process of streamlining approvals for construction projects in urban areas by the end of this year.

The decision was taken at an inter-ministerial meeting chaired by Minister of Urban Development and Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation Venkaiah Naidu.

Naidu reviewed the progress made by various ministries and departments to enhance the ‘ease of doing business’ in respect of construction and housing projects in urban areas in the context of implementation of new urban sector initiatives like Housing for All, Smart City Mission and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT).

He urged the Ministry of Environment to come out with a simplified check list for ensuring compliance by urban local bodies.

“The ongoing efforts in this regard will be completed and necessary notifications issued by the end of this year to enable urban local bodies accord approvals in a specified time period,” Ministry of Urban Development said in an official statement.
