NASHIK: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has earned Rs 60 crore revenue through various taxes of the town planning department in December alone.
With this, the revenue through various taxes of the town planning department has touched Rs 220 crore in the April-December period of the current financial year. Interestingly, Rs 100 crore of the revenue has been recovered during the last three months, between October 1 and December 30.
NMC officials said December 31 is the last date for offline submission and approval of building plan proposals. The builders and developers will have to submit their building plan proposals online from January 1, and the plans would also be approved online.
Moreover, as per the government’s new norms, builders will have to use both premium FSI and transfer of development rights (TDR) if they want to make additional construction in 50:50 ratio from January 1. Therefore, builders and developers submitted their plans and got them approved over the past three months. This is why, the civic body earned around Rs 100 crore during this time, said the officials.
The town planning department of the NMC earns revenue through building permission fees, layouts fees, hardship premiums, development charges and fees related to unauthorised constructions. On December 2 last year, the state introduced the unified development control and promotion regulations (UDCPR). The state also developed the software for online submission and approvals of plans.
