(AAI) has devised a software that will enable the applicants seek permission for height clearance online.


Bhubaneswar: Here is a good news for real estate developers, factory owners, civic bodies and energy department as they can get online height clearance from airport authorities for construction of buildings, chimneys, power transmission towers and high mast lights.

Height clearance is an important component of aircraft safety as buildings, which have more than permissible height, can pose danger to aircraft.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has devised a software called No Objection Certificate Application System (NOCAS) 2.0 that will enable the applicants seek permission for height clearance online, check status and get approval. Two days ago, Union civil aviation minister S Gajapathi Raju inaugurated the software in Delhi.

Before the use of software, the applicants had to manually apply for the clearance. The airport authorities then used to evaluate the height, mentioned by the applicants, is permissible or not.

Height of structures differs from place to place. If a building is close to the airport and directly coming on the path of takeoff or landing, there is a specific height. If a structure is far away from the airport operation area, the height is different. "So, we used to manually calculate the height considering the coordinates (air routes) of the airport from all directions," said airport director Sharad Kumar. It used to take more than two weeks to get the approval.

The NOCAS Version 2.0 has been developed by AAI and the system has user-friendly automated features. Colour Coded Zoning Maps (CCZM) of 12 cities, including Bhubaneswar, and four metros are there in the system. The system will automatically calculate the permissible height with the help of CCZM, Kumar said.

The NOCAS will ensure transparency as it is a system-generated approval and there is no scope of human intervention to clear an application. Since many high-rises are coming up in city, the online system will not only benefit the urban planners and development authorities but also will reduce the workload of AAI employees, said the senior aviation officer.
