Express News Service reported that Chairman of Builders Association of India, Southern region, KS Ramaprabhu said that “Lack of qualified manpower in local bodies is delaying the delegation of powers to local bodies under the Tamil Nadu Combined Development and Building Rules, 2019. This has hit around 3,000 projects which are likely to come up, once the state government delegates powers under the new rules.”

He says the registration of developers and engineers has been slow as most of them are still awaiting the delegation of powers to local bodies. However, though delegation of power has not yet been done, the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority is processing online applications with a building of height below 12 metres across the Chennai Metropolitan Area limit, sources said.

But then the hitch is the capacity building of local bodies which lack qualified manpower. Sources say that as per the new norms, completion certificate is a must for a building having minimum of three dwelling units. Similarly, a building with eight dwelling units in the State will have to register with the Real Estate Regulatory Authority and this requires qualified manpower or planners.
