|Department||Development Authorities, Building Control Authorities, Tehsil Municipal Authorities and Housing and Town Planning Agencies of Punjab|
|Date of Implementation||24-08-2019|
|Details||Difficulty||● Inspections were conducted at various stages of construction (before construction, different plinth levels, on completion) by the Tehsil Municipal Administration, Urban Area Development Authorities, or Building Control Authorities.
● This inspection regime was burdensome for small and medium businesses.
|Analysis||● It was deliberated that for low risk (Category-1) buildings (low cost single floor or two story buildings having an area less than 1000 sq ft) the number of inspections needed to be reduced.|
|● For low risk buildings the requirement for multiple inspections has been eliminated. Now, only two inspections will be held.|
