A Bill to regularise unauthorised construction in the state will be presented by the Urban Development Department (UDD) in the first Assembly session on Tuesday. Urban Development Minister Rushikesh Patel will present the Bill. The state government had brought Bills back in 2001 and 2011 to regularise unauthorised constructions by making the builders/citizens pay an ‘impact fee’.
Despite this, a large number of builders and common citizens have still not been able to apply for regularisation of illegal constructions. In the fresh Bill, constructions done before October 30, 2022 will be considered and applicants will have four months’ time to apply for the same.
Properties with eligible FSI less than 1.0 will not be considered, and will cover only residential premises.
The fee structure is as follows:
Up to 50 sq mt: Rs 3,000; between 50 and 100 sq mt: Rs 6,000; between 100 and 200 sq mt: Rs 12,000; between 200 and 300 sq mt: Rs 18,000; above 300 sq mt: Rs 18,000 and above plus Rs 150 per sq mt.
