Nagpur Improvement Trust requests approvals for 500 plots

The Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) administration has proposed to sanction building plans, issue regularisation letters (RL), and give other approvals to those who have paid charges to the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) in a major relief for over 500 plot owners.

However, in its ongoing battle with NMC, NIT refuses to give up the Rs 125 crore that the civic body has recovered from these plot owners.

In a meeting on October 4th, the NIT board of trustees will make a final decision in this regard.

On 27th August 2019, the state government took away NIT's powers and made the NMC the city's sole planning authority. In the areas transferred from the NIT, the NMC had approved building plans, issued RLs, and given other approvals.

The government restored NIT's powers on April 9th of this year. The NMC had taken charges in over 500 cases while the process of sanctioning building plans, issuing RLs, and other approvals were still in progress.

All of the cases had to be transferred to NIT by the NMC. Although people had paid NMC fees, NIT is now requesting fees from plot owners.

The NIT administration has now proposed that charges paid to the NMC be verified by requesting copies of receipts and other documents. If the norms are followed, the NIT will approve the building plan, issue the RL, and grant other approvals such as plot amalgamation, division, mutations, and so on.

Simultaneously, the NIT administration has said that it will suffer a financial loss of Rs 125 crore.

The NIT's refusal to give up the Rs 125 crore in revenue will prolong the conflict between the two agencies.

Guardian minister Nitin Raut and president of the City Congress Committee Vikas Thakre, who is also a trustee in the NIT, want the NIT to recover Rs 125 crore from the NMC. The two leaders were crucial in restoring NIT's authority.
