Chennai, July 20(BPNS)

The Tamil Nadu housing and urban development Minister, S Muthusamy has said that the state would form flying squads to inspect the buildings under construction to prevent any violation in the layout or building approval. The minister said that if there are any defects it would be rectified at the initial stages itself based on the reports of the flying squad.

The minister was speaking to reporters at Erode on Tuesday.

Muthusamy said that presently the officials inspect a building only after its work is completed to check for violations and to issue the completion certificate.

He said that instead, flying squads will inspect the construction of the building at each stage and will mark out the violations and inform the concerned authorities for the flaw to be cleared. The minister said that this would help the building owner also to make the necessary changes in the construction according to the report was given by the squad.

The housing and urban minister said that the Chief Minister, M.K.Stalin has directed the officials that building permissions must be given in 45 working days and that there should not be any violations.

It may be noted that several violations in building construction were noticed in Tamil Nadu and constructions without taking into account the Coastal Zone guidelines were rampant in the state. The Madras High court has also made a few observations against the blatant violation of declared norms in the state of Tamil Nadu.
