HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority has decided to open a single window cell for clearing applications for building permissions from engineering colleges within HMDA limits by levying fees and penalties as per rules.
The cell will liaise with revenue and irrigation authorities and procure information on its own instead of asking the applicants for furnishing relevant documents.
The decision was taken by HMDA metropolitan commissioner MT Krishna Babu at a meeting held with the managements of engineering colleges and applicants of LRS here on Friday.
More than 60 representatives of engineering colleges attended the meeting. Many of them told the commissioner that they took up construction only after obtaining permissions from respective local bodies. Some complained that HMDA was taking long time to grant permissions due to the attitude of some officials. All of them agreed to submit applications, building plans and other details.
At another meeting conducted by Krishna Babu with LRS applicants who had paid part amount and whose regularisation process could not be completed. About 120 applicants narrated their problems in securing plan sanction for want of submission of affidavits, revenue sketches, etc.
