Bhubaneswar: The Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) today organised a consultative workshop for its empanelled architects and showed them the newly-developed online Building Plan Approval System (BPAS) so that the architects can provide the feedback to the development authority on BPAS.
The demo workshop was organised in the conference hall of the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) and was attended by more than 50 architects.
Under the Ease of Doing Business Policy the BPAS will be facilitated on-line through a Common Application Form (CAF). In fact, earlier for getting a building plan approval applicants had to apply to multiple agencies to get the no-objection certificates and then had to apply BDA/BMC for plan approval.
Once the new suggestions are incorporated into the BPAS fold, the changes will be made and would be placed before the state government for consideration and approval. After the approval and statutory induction, the BPAS will be notified for use by all stakeholders to get building plan approval, it was learnt.
