Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has decided to monitor all ongoing constructions through risk based classification inspection mechanism. The mechanism aims at minimising the deviations and issue online occupancy certificate after the construction.
The builders would be asked to submit the status of building periodically which will be monitored by GHMC officials.
According GHMC official, the ongoing structures will be divided into three categories in the risk based classification inspection. He said that the civic body will divide all ongoing constructions into low, medium and high risk buildings.
He said all independent houses will fall under low risk category and building owner or builder should submit the construction report with photographs of the building to obtain occupancy certificate.
Apartments or G+5 structures will fall under medium risk buildings where the builders have to submit the construction report with photograph for every three months.
Structures above G+5 will have to submit the report with photograph for every six months to obtain occupancy certificate. He said for high risk buildings the GHMC official will accompany the builders during the inspection.
When asked about the issue, a senior GHMC official told The Hans India that it has been noticed that the builders, after obtaining the building permission, are not constructing the buildings according to the plan submitted to the GHMC. He said the deviated buildings pose threat to citizens.
The deviations claimed at least 20 lives in the past six months. He said that in order to minimise the deviations and unauthorised constructions, the GHMC has decided to opt for risk based classification inspection mechanism.
The GHMC official further said that if the builder will not receive occupancy certificate if the builder failed to submit the ongoing construction as specified by the civic body.
He said risk based classification inspection mechanism would also help the civic monitor all unauthorised structures and demolish immediately in the construction stage.
