Builders in Agra should display maps of under construction buildings on site
The Agra Development Authority (ADA) has asked builders and property owners to display house maps approved by the development authority from now. The builders will have to put up boards at construction sites displaying the building maps.
According to ADA officials, it becomes inconvenient to ask for maps every time during inspection as developers try to evade checks. Also, it is difficult to identify construction as residential or commercial on the spot. Therefore, if the maps are displayed prominently, the officials will not have to ask developers repeatedly to show the approved maps.
The decision was taken after ADA officer on special duty Yogendra Kumar went on inspection in different parts of the city and found that most of the builders were not carrying the approved maps. The senior officer then conducted a meeting and asked officers to take strict action against property owners if map boards are not displayed at construction sites.
“Availability of maps on site of construction is necessary to compare the approved plan and construction being undertaken at the site. Non compliance of the order will result in strict action,” Kumar said, adding that engineer concerned will be held responsible if maps of under-construction buildings are not displayed at the site.
