BMC to develop Auto Scrutiny Model at the cost of 8 crore

Mumbai : The Mumbai civic body has recently planned to develop a new software to scrutinise building plans as per old and new development control regulations (DCR).

This will help BMC to reduce manual intervention and save time and in view of the recently state-approved Development Control and Promotion Regulations (DCPR), the civic body has proposed to set up an Auto Scrutiny Model at the cost of about ₹8 crore.

According to BMC, the new software will scrutinise 3-dimensional plans of proposed buildings via a 3D-Building Information Module (3DBIM) before giving approval. Earlier, the building proposal department would check plans only in 2D, said an official on condition of anonymity.

BMC has proposed to build this software under the ease of doing business model. It will create a single window for seeking clearance, allow changes to be made as and when the DCPR is modified and give out deficiency reports and post-concession reports.
