From March 1, apply online for building construction

Come March 1 and citizens of Mysuru can apply for permits for construction of buildings under Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) online.

According to a press release from the Corporation Commissioner C G Betsurmath, the residents of the city can log on to and apply for their proposed buildings.

“The applicants need to upload soft copies of all necessary documents including the blueprint of the proposed building and provide their email ID and mobile phone number.

The blueprint should be uploaded in DWG or PDF format. Once the permit is issued, it will be forwarded to the email and mobile phones of the applicants. If the applicants do not have knowledge about internet and websites, they can avail the assistance of the corporation staffers at the MCC for uploading documents. The fees for permits can also be paid online,” the press release stated.

The MCC Commissioner, in the press note, has stated that it had come to the notice of the MCC that some persons were constructing buildings — residential, commercial and also industrial — without obtaining necessary permission.

He has warned that no basic infrastructure and amenities would be provided to the buildings constructed without proper permits.

“As per Sections 299 to 310 of the Karnataka Municipal Corporation Act, 1976, and Section 15 of the Karnataka Urban and Rural Planning Act, the buildings constructed without permits will be considered as illegal structures and legal action will be initiated against the violators.

“Citizens, who intend to construct buildings on the properties under the MCC, on Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) developed properties or on other properties under the MCC limits, should get katha transfered in their names, pay necessary tax and avail approval for plans before initiating any construction works,” the press note adds.

The Commissioner has appealed to the citizens to abide by the rules and help the MCC in facilitating planned growth of the city.
