Pending decision, Govt freezes Regional Plan

 

Pending a final decision on the Regional Plan 2021, the state government today put the controversial plan on hold.

The decision would hit the new infrastructure projects.

The order to keep the no objection certificates (NOCs) given under the plan in abeyance was issued today by Town and Country Planning (TCP) department.

As a result, no project or proposal which has got green signal under the RP 2021 can proceed till further orders.

Chief Town Planner S Putturaju said the proposals would be kept on hold till government took decision on the plan.

Governor K Sankaranarayanan, in his address to the Legislative Assembly on March 20, had said that government will scrap the development plan, and frame a new one, taking all stakeholders into confidence.

Putturaju said all the permissions granted, or the applications received after March 20 will be referred to the state government, to be decided on case-to-case basis.

“We have asked all the officials in TCP, including its branches, to stop issuance of no objection certificates.” RP-2021, drafted by the previous Congress-led regime, had provoked a lot of opposition as civil rights groups said it would destroy the greenery in the state.

BJP had promised to scrap the plan on coming to power.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had earlier said that decision on the new plan would be taken only after April 20.
