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.
 

Solution 

●      For low risk buildings the requirement for multiple inspections has been eliminated. Now, only two inspections will be held.
