Objections/Suggestions Invited on Chandigarh Building Rules (Urban) - 2017

Under the initiative of Ease of Doing Business (EoDB), the Town and Country Planning Organization (TCPO), Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India circulated the Model Building Bye-laws in 2016 for adoption by State and U.T. Governments. The task in Chandigarh was assigned to the Department of Urban Planning. Accordingly, a committee was constituted for formulation of common rules with due consideration to byelaws/notifications/orders as issued/notified from time to time by the Chandigarh Administration.

Now, the Chandigarh Building Rules, 2017 (Urban) have been formulated by the Department of Urban Planning inspired by the Model Building Bye-laws , 2016 of Government of India. These are a compilation of relevant notifications/orders issued till date by the Chandigarh Administration, new chapters and guidelines mandated by MBBL-2016 and some elements of Haryana Building Code-2016. These rules contain norms and regulations in respect of Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Public-Semi Public land uses and other land uses ; building services ; High Rise Buildings ; Climate Resilient construction (environment clearance) ; green buildings; sustainable development measures etc.

These rules shall be applicable to the entire U.T. except Abadi Areas (Lal Dora) of U.T. villages.

Have given multiple representations representing Chandigarh Petroleum Dealers Association to increase revenues for administration ,Sales, employmento different authorities at local level of UT administration to improve "ease of doing business" by simply amending a building by law which prevents 100% coverage of mezanine floor without extra building requirements but still suggestions have not been implemented as given in this letter.I hope this forum will help in highlighting issues faced by us.

I would like to suggest on working of District Development Officer, Country Town Planning Officer, PWD, Municipal Body, DISCOM, BSNL, Gas Company. Because of their lack of coordination and common understanding, we are not getting efficient infrastructure. They all have different standards of practice. We have not set common standards so government and public money going to waste.
We have to set criteria for giving approval for new buildings and apartment and it has to scrutinize thoroughly.

The collect rates must be announced soon to break the uncertainity among buyers and sellers.The Rent Laws need to be amended in our country at the soonest for the revival of Property business.Nepal has strict laws,so why cannot we implement it.Senior citizens can get additional income and human company if out tenancy laws are strictly regulated.This is a huge problem faced by many senior citizens.Our government has its hands full on cleaning up the 70 years of mess is understandable.

CBR 2017(Page10) lays 'Plinth height' shall mean the height of the ground floor above the street level measured from the level of the centre of the adjoining street. Whereas Para 4.2.1.1 of. MBBL2016 of GOI & Para3.3 of HBC2016 lays “The height of the plinth shall be not less than 450 mm from the surrounding ground level.”
In many cases cycle track on rear side of plot is higher than centre of the adjoining street in the front. “Plinth height” definition should define such cases also.
