EDC to be spent only in plan area

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 12

The external development charges (EDC) received against any licence granted in a development plan area will be utilised for provision of external development works in the said development plan area. A proposal to this effect has been approved by CM Manohar Lal Khattar.

Earlier, the EDC received by the Town and Country Planning Department was sent to the headquarters. Thereafter, this was used by Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran to complete development works in various cities.

Now, separate bank accounts would be opened in all cities, in which the EDC collected would be deposited and spent on development of the cities. The EDC received against any specific project in a given town would be utilised for provision of external development of the respective town alone.
