Two commercial projects get online building plan approval for the first time
The Minister for Urban Development & Housing (UDH) and Local Self Government (LSG), Rajpal Singh Shekhawat recently approved online the building plans of two commercial projects in Jaipur. This was for the first time that such projects received online approval ever since the user-friendly ‘Building Plan Approval System’ (BPAS) was initiated by the Rajasthan Government on 6 June. These projects are located at Bhiwadi and Udaipur.
The Principal Secretary, LSG, Dr. Manjit Singh and secretary, cooperative department, Abhay Kumar were also present on the occasion.
On the occasion the minister said that it is indeed a matter of pride that Rajasthan as a State is the first in the country to initiate the online BPAS in all the districts. Apart from fast clearance of projects, there will be transparency and simplification in the system. Since there is no manual intervention of any kind it will help in doing away with any kind of malpractices. Now within maximum 30 days the building plan will be cleared online. A fast track approval will also be in place by 1 August, the minister informed.
The BPAS has been hosted on Single Sign on the website of State Government https://sso.rajasthan.gov.in under implementation of ‘Business Reform Action Plan 2015’ of Ease of Doing Business (EODB) by the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP). This benefit can also be availed of in the ongoing Single Window Clearance System (http://swcs.rajasthan.gov.in/).
An investor now just has to register on the website and has to submit the requisite documents. There is a single ID, a personal dashboard for accessing information and status of the online applications by the applicant.
The BPAS covers end to end solutions for the applicant by way of providing online submission, processing, site inspection, release of building plan approval as well as payment of the fee.
Under this project the BPAS have been already implemented through the State covering all Local Bodies & Urban Development Authorities, UITs and RIICO.
