Chandigarh: Owners now can easily regularize their properties that fall under unauthorized developed colonies on the portal of Punjab housing and development.

Cabinet minister, Aman Arora said that Punjab Housing and Urban Development (H&UD) is now providing various services including regularization of plots and buildings, procuring NOCs, and change of ownership, at a click in a mandated timeline. Earlier, applicants had to visit many times to government offices to get these basic services. 

Minister also said, “Giving a major reprieve to the people who bought properties in unauthorized colonies, the H&UD department has introduced a facility for online submission and processing of applications on the regularisation portal for obtaining NOC. Further, the timeline for issuance of NoCs has also been reduced to 15 working days from the earlier stipulated period of 21 days to ensure quick and timely disposal of applications”. 

The allottees whose properties fall under the unauthorized colonies developed can avail the facility of regularization before March 19, 2018.

Minister added that initially, the H&UD department had also made digitally signed permission access to the owners of their properties, thereby bringing in 100 percent transparency in the functioning of the department, which will further create a mechanism that people won’t need to file RTI to access these permissions. I have been personally monitoring the status of online services and delay in the disposal of any application will not be tolerated. 

All the applications regarding these 25 services are being processed online; besides providing services i.e. real-time tracking of applications, issuance of digitally signed certificates, and intimation through SMS alert, said the minister.
