Tamil Nadu eases permission procedures for construction of small houses
The Tamil Nadu government issued an order for houses within 1200 square feet built up area, which was made public on Wednesday.
The order of the municipal administration and water supply department dated August 21, 2019 said that the new exemption to ease the planning permission procedures for smaller constructions can be utilised for constructions that are carried out in an area within 2500 square feet with built up area under 1200 square feet.
While applications for planning permissions can be filed online, the existing process of physical inspection by officials from the respective local bodies at the construction site has been kept aside for such constructions.
Constructions will be allowed only on approved plots.
