Venkaiah releases model bye-laws for construction


Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu released the model building bye-laws 2016 on Friday. The bye-laws aim to boost ease of doing business in the construction sector.

According to media reports, the new bye-laws provide a structural framework for single-window integrated building plan approval process and set the maximum time-limit for all kind of building approvals at 30 days, after which the approval can be considered ‘deemed’.

“The mechanism creates a single window approval system that eliminates man to man interaction and there by reduces corruption,” said Naidu. He also urged the state governments to adopt them in their own laws.

The model building bye-laws provide for the integration of various types of environmental considerations. “Once implemented, there will be no requirement for any separate environmental clearance or permission,” the minister said.

The new laws have catagorised buildings into three categories based on the built-up area — 5,000 to 20,000 square meters, 20,000 to 50,000 sqmt and 50,000 to 150,000 sqmt.
