The higher officials are convincing the government to imply the system of single-window for the real estate projects to get clearance. This is because the entire procedure of obtaining various certificates and approvals from concerned authorities is the main cause of the burden of cost and time. This overburdening results in the housing project delays ultimately leading to corruption.
The government should encourage the development of real estate projects instead of just putting regulations.
State governments must also adopt computerized system of maintaining records online otherwise even Housing for All projects getting delayed in India will become common.
