Patna: The Urban development and housing department (UDHD) on Wednesday cleared the decks for house map approval in the state capital and its adjoining areas. The matter had been hanging fire since December, 2012, adversely affecting the real estate business and common man who wanted to build a house. The maps will be approved following Bihar Building Bylaws, 2014 till the new Patna master plan is finalized.

New and old as well as commercial and residential areas are marked in the bylaws. In the old city area, a map can be approved on not less than 12 feet road. Building up to G+2 will be allowed on a 12ft wide road. The old city is marked between Mahatma Gandhi Setu in the east to Danapur in the west and from the bank of the Ganga in the north to New Bypass in the south.

In new Patna area, minimum 20 feet wide road is required. Only G+3 building map will be approved with maximum height of 12 metres on a 20ft wide road. On a 30ft wide road, G+5 up to 18 metre height and on a 40ft wide road G+7 with 24 metre height can be approved. There is no restriction on height for a 60ft wide road.

Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC) has been given maximum 60 days to approve the map failing which action would be taken against the officials concerned. Those who have to construct a house or have already constructed one in an area of 300 square metre have to simply submit the map. It will be deemed permitted and will be automatically approved within two months. The UDHD has sent a letter to PMC, Danapur Nagar Parishad, Phulwarisharif Nagar Parishad and Khagaul Nagar Parishad instructing them to start map approving from Wednesday itself.

UDHD has cancelled the process of planning report to make it easy. PMC has been asked to upload the map under its jurisdiction in which it has to mention about the land use. PMC has deputed four engineers for map approval.

UDHD has also roped in a multinational agency which has developed software through which map approval could be done online. "Within three months, this software will be made available to the people," a UDHD official said. Patna Metropolitan Area Authority (PMAA) would also be made functional to take care of building regulation, sewerage system and roads, he said.
