Hyderabad: Municipal administration minister K.T. Rama Rao on Friday announced that the government would bring in a new system for building permissions (TS-bPass). This would reduce the human interface in urban local bodies, apart from the GHMC and HMDA, where they have already implemented the Development Permission Management System (DPMS).
He made the announcement while participating in CREDAI. Mr Rao said that TS-bPass would be a revolutionary system, which would be advanced from DPMS.
Speaking at the event, Mr Rama Rao said the government’s aim was to ensure that people get building permissions in a time-bound manner and a corruption-free environment. Mr Rama Rao had earlier said TS-bPass would allow a citizen to construct a house through self-certification if it is built within 75 square yards.
Rama Rao said the government would soon have a meeting with the representatives of Credai and state government officials. He said the TS-bPass would become a role model the way TS-iPass had become. The new system will be released after multiple checks.The MAUD minister requested the investor community to look beyond the capital city for taking up projects. He even asked the developers to invest in architecture rather building organic permanent structures, while cities like Bengaluru in India have been the front runners.
To compete with the world class cities, builders in Hyderabad should focus on structural beauty, the government is ready to provide the necessary support, he said....
