Construction of 250 buildings gets stuck due to delay in AAI NOC

Construction of about 250 high rise buildings in Mumbai in the area of the airport, is stuck for over two-three months due to the delay in receiving a no-objection certificate (NOC) from the Airport Authority of India (AAI), according to Practising Engineers Architects and Town Planners Association (PEATA) Mumbai.

AAI provided height NOCs for buildings after an independent empanelled third party carried out a re-survey by satellites to inspect the elevation of the construction site. The body representing engineers and architects, PEATA, has now penned to AAI to facilitate the resurvey procedure so projects are not stuck, causing financial and time losses at the project cost.

The survey by these private agencies gets stuck for two-three months due to an overload of applications, PEATA told the media.

The letter explains that AAI problems height NOCs to buildings near the airport, and the applications are made online.

Applicants survey all documents, such as the location of the land and the survey map.

According to the procedure, the private agencies have been appointed to re-survey the land elevation using satellite technology.

Shirish Sukhatme, senior architect part of PEATA, part of the association, told the media that the AAI does not trust the elevation records submitted by the authority.

At the time of this re-survey, developers have already laid out the plinth level for the project, the height NOC gets stuck, and the Mumbai municipal corporation doesn't provide a completion certificate (CC). Due to this procedure, over 250 buildings across Mumbai are stuck.

The architect lands up waiting for the survey to be completed, and eight to 10 follow-ups are needed with the surveyors. Some of the architects block the number of architects and developers.

PEATA has requested that slots with date and time should be booked online so that they take place as per schedule.

The Delhi-Dehradun Motorway will reduce commute time by half

The Delhi-Dehradun expressway's fourth segment, which would improve connectivity, is expected to open by May 2025. Saharanpur will be used in this project to connect two roads.
