In order to clear some of the impediments to housing projects in the state, Uttarakhand government decided to introduce a Housing and Urban Development policy.
The proposed policy would be prepared and a separate authority with zonal units will be set up to remove the usual bottlenecks faced by people in clearance of housing maps both in private and group housing projects, simplifying the process of building construction in the state, Housing secretary M H Khan said after a meeting with Chief Secretary Alok Kumar Jain.
The policy would enable creation of a separate authority to speed up clearance of maps and facilitate construction of buildings in private and group housing projects in the state.
At the meeting with the Chief Secretary, the state housing department made a detailed presentation in this regard.
The department is preparing an institutional framework incorporating suggestions made by Chief Secretary for the proposed authority. He said this will bring bigger investments in the state through group housing projects.
