Under the Unified Building Bye-Laws (UBBL) for Delhi, an environment clearance is required from the Ministry of Environment and Forest for all the buildings with a built-up area of 20,000 square meter and above. There is no need for obtaining sanction of building plan for a residential plot size up to 105 square meter, said Minister of Urban Development M. Venkaiah Naidu.

The residential plot up to the size of 105 square meter is taken under the saral scheme of the UBBL. The owners of such plots have to merely submit an undertaking for construction along with requisite fees and other documents. 

Under the UBBL that was notified by the DDA last week, the maximum time limit for granting a building permit has been reduced from 60 days to 30. 

Briefing the media about the UBBL for Delhi, Naidu said that the number of documents to be submitted for obtaining building permit has been reduced from 40 to 14. 

The requirement to seek permission for beginning the construction has been removed. The owner will be required to inform the local body concerned to proceed with the work. 

The minister said that under the UBBL, the procedure for obtaining the completion-cum-occupancy certificate has been simplified by reducing the number of documents to be submitted by the plot owner--from 36 to 9.
