AHMEDABAD: Just like architects, engineers and structural designers have to be registered with the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC), the civic body has demanded the same for real estate developers.
AMC now wants developers to register with the civic body after paying a fee. The issue has come up in the latest agenda of the AMC’s standing committee for approval. “This will bring in greater accountability in the profession,” says a senior AMC official.
The policy was proposed after the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA), in its latest development control regulations, proposed that the policy of registering developers be mandated. “In the coming months, the AMC will be constructing thousands of LIG and EWS housing units in the city which require that the developers who wish to take up such projects on a PPP basis register with the civic body,” adds the senior AMC official.
