NEW DELHI: The developers in the national capital will henceforth be required to ensure the setting up of ground water recharge system through rain water harvesting, recycling waste water, sewage treatment plant and solar heating systems in buildings constructed on plots measuring 3,000 sq m or more, according to the guidelines for ‘green’ buildings proposed in Master Plan of Delhi-2021 . 

Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on Tuesday directed the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to finalise the draft regulations, which will be submitted to the Central Government for approval.

As per the draft regulations, all the local bodies must ensure optimal on-site utilisation of resources such as water and energy while giving the approval for the building plans.

“All hospitals, commercial and industrial establishments, hotels, restaurants and auto workshops will have to make arrangements for primary effluent treatment within the plot,” said an IAS officer.

According to the official, the building should have utilities such as underground water storage tank, rooftop water harvesting system and separate dry and wet dustbins.

“There should also be provision for cavity walls, atriums and shading devices in buildings to make them energy efficient,” the draft states. 

The guidelines also suggest incentives with respect to enhanced FAR, ground coverage and property tax rebate. Besides, the guidelines pitch for a monitoring system to ensure continuous on-site compliance and performance and disincentives for non-compliance.

“The guidelines are to be implemented by all the local bodies concerned as part of processing of building permits within their respective jurisdiction,” states the proposal.
