Various bodies representing the real estate industry have asked chief minister Devendra Fadnavis to extend the enforcement of Development Plan 1991, and Development Control Regulations, 1991.
Fadnavis has agreed to the demand, said sources.
The demand has been made, as a major part of the Development Plan 2034 has been marked as Excluded Plan (EP) for which suggestions and objections have been invited from the public by June 23. It is also when the sanctioned plan (Schedule A) comes into force.
Experts estimate nearly 40-60% of DP-2034 is in the EP. The EP comprises changes made to the plan by the state government after it was approved and passed by the BMC general body. The changes are substantial and alter the character of DP-2034. Hence, the government is required under the Maharashtra Regional Town Planning Act to invite suggestions/objections.
Manoj Daisaria, ex-president Practising Engineers, Architects and Town Planners Association (PEATA) said with a large part of DP-2034 not implementable, it would create confusion.
“The extension is required till August when the EP will be finalised,” he said.
However, N Shende, director, Town Planning, at a recent MCHI-CREDAI workshop said it would be cleared towards the end of the year.]
