Authority continues online approval for new building layouts amidst lockdown
The Mussoorie Dehradun Development Authority (MDDA) has contributed Rs 2.51 crore to the CM relief fund to assist efforts for tackling the situation resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Urban Development and Housing minister Madan Kaushik along with MDDA chairman Ravinath Raman presented the cheque for this amount to the CM Trivendra Singh Rawat. The MDDA vice chairman Ashish Kumar Srivastava was also among those present on the occasion.
Apart from this, the authority has optimised the use of technology to continue the process of online building map approval for public convenience amidst the lockdown. From March 22 to April 13, the MDDA team observing ‘work from home’ worked on a total 309 files of which 155 were approved, 16 were cancelled due to being incomplete while applicants were asked to resolve objections due to incomplete information in 138 files on which further action will be taken on the basis of the applicants’ response. Any applicant can submit building layout for approval on the authority’s portal https://mddaonline.org.in/mdda while staying at home. Since the portal has online payment facility, the applicant does not have to break the lockdown conditions to get the map approved. However, this facility is only for new building maps during the lockdown since processing of maps for compounding requires mandatory site inspection. After approval of the new building map, applicants will be able to start construction after the end of the lockdown or after relevant directions are received from the proper level.
