NEW DELHI: The government has eased the process for getting permission for construction within the 15 km radius of airports. As per the new norms, projects don't need to get nod from the civil aviation ministry, if the proposed height is within the stipulated limits. 

"We issued the guidelines few weeks back. If the plans and projects comply with the height restriction norms, the local bodies can give permission and these cases need not come to our ministry," civil aviation secretary V Somasundran said. 

Sources said this had been communicated to urban development minister M Venkaiah Naidu. It will expedite the clearance for construction projects. They said earlier all applications needed to get approval from the civil aviation ministry, even if they complied with the height norms. 

Officials said originally Airports Authority of India (AAI) used to clear all such projects, but during UPA-II, the power was vested with the aviation ministry. "Cutting down one stage for procedural clearance will expedite projects," a UD ministry official said. 

In yet another move, the aviation ministry has come out with colour-coding zones in Mumbai to make the process of clearances easier for real estate projects. "We target to complete this process for Delhi by April 15 and for the other cities, it's two months," Somasundaran said. 

The code zoning at various levels can be used as immediate reference and municipal authorities can clear project below the specified height, the Urban Development Ministry sources said.
