The Local Government Minister, Navjot Singh Sidhu on August 16, rolled out flagship ‘e-Naksha Online Building Plan Approval System’ (OBPAS) and said that the OBPAS would be a purely online platform and gave timeframe of one and a half months to sort out the technicalities with regard to the project after which no building plan would be allowed to be submitted manually.
Terming it as the revolutionary project and the giant leap towards Progressive Punjab, the minister said that it is a one stop place for all the architects/citizens to submit drawings/documents for the building plan approval and would cater to the 165 ULBs as well as the 27 Improvement Trusts.
While addressing the architects as well as the Commissioners of all the Municipal Corporations of Punjab at Municipal Bhawan he said.
Soliciting the cooperation of the people, the minister said that the project would ensure that the project would bring to the fore the transparency aspect which would ensure the filling up of the coffers of the state. He also said that the success of the project would also result in the 100 per cent submission of the property and water tax which would strengthen the financial position of Punjab.
Listing out the futuristic vision, Sidhu said that the next focus area would be the starting of an e-CLU system.
