Odisha Govt re-launches Sarbakhyama Yojana to regularise unauthorised constructions, projects


Bhubaneswar: vThe State Government on Wednesday re-launched the Sarbakhyama Yojana (amnesty scheme) to regularise unauthorised constructions and projects.

Housing and Urban Development Minister Niranjan Pujari announced the latest version of the scheme known as “Scheme for Regularisation of Unauthorised Construction, 2018”.

Under the scheme cleared under the Planning and Building Standards Regulations, the unauthorised and illegal constructions can be regularised by paying a specific fee amount and furnishing the building plan copy along with the construction guidelines, the no objection certificate (NOC) including fire safety certificates to the development authorities.

In case of mega projects, it is mandatory for the builder to obtain infrastructure development NOC from the concerned municipal authorities. If the applicant wants to register his house under Zero Set Back, he needs to get NOC from his neighbour.

However, the application for regularisation of a plot with a size up to 300 square meter would be taken for consideration in case of non-availability of NOC from the neighbour.

In case of residential house built in an area of 300 square meter and above with 75 per cent ground coverage, the building could be regularised by relaxing set back and parking rules.

The Government has completely relaxed stairwell and veranda width size rules of the residential houses. But, few relaxations have been made in case of apartments and special buildings. The authorities have relaxed only 25 per cent parking rules for multi-storied buildings.

It is inevitable to commission the water storage sump tank and rooftop water tank as per the rules in the apartments and residential houses.

However, rules have been relaxed partially for the buildings constructed by the organisations associated with healthcare services.
