Following the digital era, the development authorities have been instructed by the state government to execute the system of online map approval in the respective area under them.
The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) officials have announced that they are planning to prepare a tender and will encourage agencies to design software for online building map approval system.
Officials have also said that this new system of approving maps of housing and commercial properties projects online will speed up the entire process of getting clearances.
Usually, the approval for residential maps takes around 30 days while the approval for commercial and group housing properties takes around 90 days. This hand-operated process becomes very inconvenient as the applicants have to visit the authority office for various formalities till the time they get receive the approval.
But once the online systems of map approval will be put in place, the process will become extremely fast and convenient. The applicants will be able to submit the applications online and will also be able to submit revised documents as required by the authority. The main aim behind online map approval system is to reduce the paper-work and fuss created for the applicants.
