Cidco’s new soft­ware prom­ises quicker build­ing per­mis­sions

Real es­tate de­vel­op­ers in the city can now ap­ply for build­ing per­mis­sions online. The City and In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (Cidco) has taken yet another step to help bring in trans­parency and ef­fi­ciency in grant­ing per­mis­sions for build­ing con­struc­tions. It has also re­duced the num­ber of no ob­jec­tion cer­tifi­cates (NOC) re­quired.

Cidco has planned to adopt a cus­tomised ver­sion of the Au­toDCR soft­ware, a build­ing plan scru­tiny and ap­proval sys­tem, which will be of­fi­cially launched within a week. It reads CAD draw­ings and maps them to the de­vel­op­ment con­trol reg­u­la­tions for ap­proval by mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tions and ap­prov­ing author­i­ties.

With a large num­ber of con­struc­tions ex­pected in the NAINA pro­ject, Cidco can now con­trol de­lays in the area by grant­ing per­mis­sions faster.

The de­vel­op­ers and in­vestors have been hit hard ow­ing to the de­lays by Cidco in grant­ing per­mis­sion.

The move comes af­ter rep­re­sen­ta­tives of builders’ or­gan­i­sa­tions raised the is­sue with Cidco.

“We have re­duced the num­ber of NOCs from nine to four. Per­mis­sion for elec­tric con­nec­tions will be given against a bill for the same. There will be self-cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for fire-safety per­mis­sion once the builders upload a film of the in­fra­struc­ture in place,” said V Radha, joint man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Cidco.

“Once the Au­toDCR soft­ware is com­mis­sioned, de­vel­op­ers can sub­mit their ar­chi­tec­tural plan, the maps and other doc­u­ments online with their ap­pli­ca­tion. The soft­ware will ver­ify the doc­u­ments online and el­i­gi­ble ap­pli­cants will be is­sued per­mis­sions online,” added Radha.

At a re­cently-held work­shop in Cidco, vice chair­man and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor San­jay Bha­tia ex­plained the soft­ware to city ar­chi­tects, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of builders and in­vestors, who also sug­gested changes in the soft­ware.
