Tamil Nadu sets up single window for building clearances

To bring relief to people in getting clearances and approvals for construction of buildings, the Tamil Nadu government is bringing in a single window clearance system through which people can apply online for different building approvals.

The Tamil Nadu e-Governance Agency has been roped in to develop the portal. The agency will also be maintaining it and tenders will be called for the project. After creation of the special software, people can submit their application online for different services like obtaining planning permission, building permission application, completion certificate and occupancy certificate.

The website will be a one stop for a range of services from building permits, occupancy certificate or completion certificate, said an official spokesperson, adding that the applications will be processed online and initiatives will be taken to dispose off the applications in a time-bound manner.
