Property licensing to go online in Haryana

All process relating to change of land use (CLU) and obtaining licence for real estate projects in Haryana will go online by June 30. The town and country planning department will launch first few applications by March-end and the rest in June to end discrimination, selective choice in processing applications and corruption.

The applicants can also track the progress of their applications.

The online system will have five features and cover the entire cycle of a project starting from the filing of application to their scrutiny, sanction of building plans, payments by developers for external and infrastructure development to government besides the monthly or quarterly progress of the project and compliance of norms.

Even minute details including notices and orders issued by local offices will have to be uploaded, thereby leaving no scope for them to misuse their authority. Since every detail of projects including that of allottees will be available online, anyone buying a flat under economically weaker section (EWS) category won't be able to buy another one from a different developer.

Sources said though there has been "first come first served" policy for processing applications relating to CLU from agriculture to residential, institutional or industrial purposes, money changed hands as all the process are manual.

Chief Minister Manoharlal Khattar has reportedly instructed the department officials to comply with the time line to bring in transparency and eliminate any preferential treatment to any applicant.

Annually issuance of licenses for real estate projects generates about Rs 1,000 crore revenue.

Usually 40-60 licenses are issued by the state government, mostly in Gurgaon, Faridabad, Sonipat and Panchkula. Last year, it was only 14-15 because of the slump in real estate sector.

"At present, applicants need to submit hard copies of bulky documents including map, building plans and other details.

Now they need to upload them and so there is no scope of missing or loss of files," said additional chief secretary P Raghavendra Rao.

Sources said since the applications will be linked to the GIS maps, the authorities can find out which areas are being left out and the reasons behind this.
