Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar Thursday said Faridabad Metropolitan Development Authority (FMDA) would be constituted to provide all infrastructure facilities to people residing there.
He said since Faridabad is the second largest city of Haryana after Gurugram, it has been decided to constitute FMDA on the lines of Gurugram Metro Development Authority (GMDA).
The chief minister made the announcement at a press conference and listed several achievements of the Town and Country Planning Department, the portfolio he holds, in the last four years.
He said the government has allowed construction of four-storey residential buildings in the state, the registration of which will be opened from Thursday.
People can now construct a stilt and four floors on their plots. Earlier rules limited construction to a stilt and three floors within a prescribed height of 15 metres.
The new provision has been made in the revised Haryana building code 2017.
Khattar said the Haryana Building Code - 2017 has been framed in order to remove the variations and bring uniformity in building bye-laws adopted by different development agencies.
The chief minister said to address the problem of parking of vehicles in residential areas, a provision of stilt has been made.
Apart from this, it has made mandatory to provide car bay in every residential plot, he said, adding that use of basement for residential purpose has also been allowed provided fire safety, lighting and ventilation provisions are fulfilled.
He said a provision of green building has been made under which a building owner is provided the benefit of additional Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of three to 15 per cent.
If the building owner sets up solar photovoltaic plant and solid waste management plant for management of water, electricity and waste, he would be provided additional FAR.
Khattar said the state government has decided to constitute an Appellate Tribunal to hear the complaints of allottees against the decision of Haryana Real Estate Regulatory Authority (HRERA) set up to redress the grievances of allottees.
The office of the Appellate Tribunal would be set up at Karnal.
The Chief Minister said HRERA has so far received 842 complaints out of which 209 complaints have already been disposed of and the rest would be redressed soon.
To ensure transparency in the allotment of sites for petrol pumps and CNG filling stations, the Haryana Government has decided to allot such sites through auction, he said.
The Chief Minister said petrol pumps and CNG filling stations sites would be allotted only to the oil companies on lease. The allotment of the sites would start from next month and the oil company with the highest bidding would be allotted the sites, Khattra said.
He also said the Haryana Shehari Vikas Pradhikaran, the state's urban development authority, plans to float nine sectors including a defence sector exclusively for defence personnel in the state during the current financial year.
These included three sectors in Mahendergarh, and one each in Bhiwani, Yamuna Nagar, Dabwali, Taoru and Pinjore. Apart from this, a defence sector exclusively for defence personnel is likely to be floated at Jhajjar, the chief minister said.
Khattar said the HSVP has a plan to float 30,470 plots in 47 residential sectors across the State and a schedule in this regard will be issued soon.
He also said the metro stations in Haryana segment on Bahadurgarh to Mundka line and the stations on the Mujesar (YMCA Chowk) to Ballabhgarh Metro Corridor has been renamed.
Khattar said on Bahadurgarh to Mundka Metro line, the MIE Metro Station has been renamed Pandit Shree Ram Sharma Metro Station, Bus Stand Metro Station as Bahadurgarh City Metro Station and City Park Metro Station as Brig. Hoshiar Singh Metro Station.
