Amid technical issues related to online approval of layout plans, Punjab's Department of Local Bodies has allowed self-certification by architects for residential and commercial buildings of plot size up to 500 sq metres and height up to 15 metres, with a silt of 2.5 metres.

To clear backlog

  • For industrial buildings, there will be no restriction with respect to plot size and height, under the Punjab Municipal Building Bylaws, 2018
  • The guidelines have been issued to clear backlog created by the delayed approval through 'e-naksha'

For industrial buildings, there will be no restriction with respect to plot size and height, under the Punjab Municipal Building Bylaws, 2018.

The guidelines have been issued to clear backlog created by the delayed approval through 'e-naksha'.

Launched in January 2019, the digital platform for the online submission of plans has been facing teething problems. The online building plan approval system (OBPS) covers 165

urban local bodies and 27 improvement trusts.

Services like scheme area, scheme category and additions/alterations were available on the online approval system. Besides, the building plans were being sanctioned on the online system as per the Municipal Building Bylaws-2018, amended in December 2019.

Issues like lack of adequate software, delay in scrutiny and getting an NOC from the civic body were acting as some of the impediments. Acting on the feedback of MLAs on the pendency of approvals to online building plans, department officials have been asked to submit a status report on the pending applications.
