The artificial intelligence-based direct building-permit system will be installed in every municipal corporation of the state
For construction of buildings on residential plots of up to 500 sq. meters (5382 sq. ft.) in urban areas, the Chhattisgarh Government has launched an artificial intelligence-based direct building-permit system. Building permits, under this system will be issued without human intervention.
Bhupesh Baghel, Chief Minister of the state, launching the portal on Monday, issued the first building permit from the artificial intelligence-based direct building-permit system to the applicant Chetan Dev Sahu, resident of Daldal Seoni, Raipur. The artificial intelligence-based direct building-permit system will be installed in every municipal corporation of the state, said the Chief Minister.
The CM said, “The newly-introduced building permit system will expedite the infrastructure development in cities of the state and save time and energy of the applicants. This system would offer an effective solution to the existing problems in the permit issuance process. Earlier this process was complicated, time-taking, and not easily accessible, requiring map approval from several officials. But now this entire process will be free from human intervention and will be completed in a shorter duration”.
Following the instruction of the Chief Minister, the portal has been developed in 15 days. The building permit will be issued within seconds if the applicant submits all the required documents with the application fee or Re. 1.
Alarmelmangai D, Secretary of Urban Development Department said, “In this newly implemented online building permit system, separate dashboards have been made for the public representatives, commissioners and engineers, on which the applications received on a daily basis are displayed along with the information about approval, permissions and pending cases”.
Through a state-level workshop, the commissioners, construction officers, building inspectors and other officers of all the municipal corporations have been trained to use the new artificial intelligence-based direct building-permit system.
