Details Difficulty ●      Without any timelines for issuance of NoCs/Permits required for low-risk buildings, the process was inefficient which added more cost and delayed the construction process.
Analysis ●      It was felt that there is a dire need to specify timelines for the issuance of NoCs/Permits to speed up the construction process.
Solution  ●      After the detailed deliberation it was agreed that there should be a specific time limit within which the NoCs/Permits are issued. Accordingly, the competent authority notified the revised regulations.
