Port Blair, Nov 22: The Lt. Governor recently inaugurated Online Building Plan Approval System (OBPAS) to bring transparency and accountability in the building plan approval system. OBPAS simplifies the procedures and streamline the processes so as to enhance Ease of Doing Business in construction permits.
As on date, PBMC approves building plans manually, With the OBPAS all building plans are proposed to be sanctioned within 15 days approximately.
As the Online Building Plan Approval System (OBPAS) platform is purely new procedure, PBMC is encouraging the Registered Architects/Engineers to submit the building plan online henceforth i.e. with effect from 25th November 2019 with necessary documents till they are conversant with the system. Thereafter, the submission of building plan online will be mandatory.
The PBMC appeals to all Registered Architects/Engineers to adopt the new system and facilitate the early approval of the plans to the citizens.
