Gandhinagar: Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Thursday launched the “Online Development Authorization System (ODPS) -2.0” at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar and said the state government is working for good governance with transparency .
Rupani said the state government wanted to develop online systems making maximum use of technology in departments such as housing, income and urban development, where people are directly connected.
He said that Gujarat became the first state in the country to develop a faceless system for adopting development plans. âOur government is working on the four pillars of transparency, decisiveness, sensitivity and progressivity. We have made a number of pioneering improvements to ensure that services are available quickly and efficiently, âsaid the CM.
Now that the new ODPS-2.0 is operational, offline permissions for low-rise buildings will be completely removed, the CM said. He said ODPS for tall buildings will also be implemented in the future. The state government is committed to taking action against those involved in abusive practices and will ensure that people are not deceived.
Rupani said the GDCR has been changed to common GDCR to develop the new system. He added that by focusing on 15 essentials such as FSI, height, headroom, parking, fire safety, the government ensured that the plans were adopted within 24 hours depending on their suitability. .
The CM added that even in the approvals of town planning schemes, this government has made 100 approvals of TP every year.

âThis is a very good initiative for consumers as well as for the construction industry. The move will speed up construction activities across Gujarat and reduce construction delays. In addition, a development certificate will also be issued on the same day, âsaid Ashish Patel, President of CREDAI-Gujarat. “Small towns will benefit even more because most construction in these areas rarely crosses 15 meters in height,” he added.
