The town and country planning wing of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation will soon offer services and permissions online, according to a report published in the Hindu. The online services will be made operational since February 1.

Somesh Kumar, Commissioner, GHMC told reporters in Hyderabad that the online system will allow applicants to submit their documents and maps online to seek building and other permissions. The payment could be made through e-payment facility or at Mee Seva centres, the commissioner said. 

“Most of the complaints from citizens relate to town planning hence, we are initiating this facility which will speed up the processing and also fix accountability on officers concerned to act in time,” Kumar told reporters.

The services have to be delivered within a time frame, exceeding which the designated officials will be liable to pay Rs 50 as penalty fee on a daily basis, Kumar said.

“Our officials and staff who visit a site for inspection and verification will have to click a picture and append it to the file and thus entire history of the file is available at a click,” Kumar added
