They are unable to move into their dream homes for want of completion certificates

Chennai: The Moulivakkam building collapse has hit very hard a few thousand salaried families who are unable to move into their dream homes for want of completion certificates. Those who have taken possession out of sheer desperation are deprived of power, water supply and sewer connections.

The process of obtaining completion certificates from the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) is getting delayed by the alleged staff shortage and also stringent scrutiny in place, unlike in the past.

According to official sources, 135 special buildings (ground plus three floors) and multi-storey buildings (four floors and above) and other structures are awaiting completion certificates. The issue of certificates came under scrutiny after the building collapse incident in June, and it was even stopped for a while. Special drives were launched and exhaustive checks made to ensure that recently completed buildings and those nearing completion adhered to norms as per the original plan approved by the CMDA.

Sources in the city’s planning agency said that about a couple of months ago, there was a massive pile-up of close to 200 completed projects for which certificates had to be issued. The number had now come down to 135 as they had roped in planners from the other wings of the CMDA to the enforcement cell to inspect and issue the certificates. They were confident that the number of projects waiting for completion certificates would come down in a couple of months.

“We are unable to take possession, and even if we move in, we cannot get power and water supply as flats do not have the completion certificate,” said B. Srinivasan, a flat owner at Vandalur.
