The government in Bihar has approved the new building bylaws according to which there will be no bar on the height of houses built on 40 ft wide new roads and 30 ft wide old roads. The rules have been formulated for the management of building construction activities in the State. The new bylaws also call for an instant approval of a map to carry out construction on a plot measuring 300 sq m, having a building height of up to 10 m.
Deputy CM, Sushil Kumar Modi, shared that the State cabinet will approve the new bylaws by the end of this month and the blueprints of the buildings will be authorised through an online single-window system. Suggestions and approvals of a few departments and the opinion of builders have been considered before drafting the new building bylaws. These bylaws will benefit the builders and investors alike.
The new laws have increased the parking and open space areas from the existing 25-35 per cent to 50 per cent. Specific provisions have been made to boost construction on government and municipal lands for affordable housing under the public-private partnership method.
