AHMEDABAD: Residents of thousands of Gujarat Housing Board (GHB) houses across the state that have constructed extra rooms are also making a beeline outside various zonal offices of municipal corporations in the state.
It was only 25 days ago that GHB had come out with a circular stating that the impact fee calculated for the extra construction in GHB houses will factor in the prevailing Jantri rates in the area. For almost one and a half years there was no clear direction from the GHB over calculation of impact fees for GHB made houses.
“GHB is not giving any NOC to any of the occupants. The AMC denies to accept our applications. We’ve just attached documents pertaining to the property and the building plan and the extra construction made as part of our declaration,” said Narendra Munshi, a resident of Naranpura area.
Senior AMC town planning officials advice that one should file the applications right away as the process of the impact fee will take one and half years. “One can make additions and submissions during this time. For now the applications are necessary,” said an official.
