Building construction requires various approvals and permits, including a building plan approval, before the construction process can commence. Chennai is a metropolitan city and the process of building plan approval can be quite complicated and time-consuming. In this blog, we'll provide a step-by-step guide on how to get required approvals for construction of a house in Chennai.
What You Need Before Submitting a Building Plan for Approval:Before you submit your residential building plan for approval in Chennai, each and every document will be verified and also rectified by our experts. To avoid any delays, there are several documents that must be proper and ready. These include copies of the property deed or sale agreement, owner identification documents such as an Aadhaar card or passport, and proof of payment of property tax dues. Additionally, if any part of the land was purchased on loan from a bank, then obtaining a NOC (No Objection Certificate) from them is also necessary. Once all of the documents have been collected and verified, we can start the approval process.
Step 1: Determine the type of Building Plan Approval RequiredThe first step in getting building plan approval is to determine the type of building plan approval required. There are two types of building plan approvals: the provisional and final. The provisional building plan approval is a temporary approval that is granted for a period of six months, while the final building plan approval is a permanent approval.
Understanding The Approval Process:
The process of obtaining approval for residential building plans in Chennai begins with filing an application at the local corporation office or Town Planning Office. Along with the application form, applicants should submit all necessary documents, including those mentioned above, as well as drawings and designs showing how they intend to build their residence. Once this initial paperwork is reviewed and accepted by the office staff, they will evaluate whether or not the proposed design meets their requirements and standards. If all criteria are met, approval will be granted within 30-60 days of submission; however, if issues arise during review, Wehouse takes the initiative to get your permissions done, and additional time may be required before final approval.
Step 2: Submit the Required DocumentsTo obtain a building plan approval, required documents must be submitted to the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA). The documents required are:
● Completed building plan application form
● Plot/site plan
● Building elevations and sectional drawings
● Structural drawings
● Electrical and plumbing drawings
● Soil test report
● Permit for tree removal (if required)
● No Objection Certificate (NOC) from neighbours
