Annexure-III

 

Planning Permission Application is processed based on the

compliance to land use to the Development Regulations Provisions, which  forms  part of Second Master Plan;

compliance to the Provisions of other relevant Act and Rules with respect to construction is the responsibility of the applicant / owner and CMDA  are responsible for  any lapse;

Planning Permission for buildings is issued in accordance with the provisions of the Town & Country Planning Act, 1971 and the rules made there under. This provision does    not cover the structural stability aspect of the building including the safety during the construction. However, these aspects are covered under the provisions of the Local Bodies Act.

As far as, the structural stability aspect of the building is concerned, it falls within   the jurisdiction of the Local Body concerned as stated in the connected  Building  Rules under the respective Local Body Act 1920, such as Madras City Municipal Corporation Act 1919, Tamil Nadu District Municipality Act, Tamil Nadu Panchayat Act. The Planning Permission issued under the provision of Tamil Nadu Town & Country Planning Act 1971, does not cover the Structural Stability aspect. However, it is the sole responsibility of the applicant / developer / Power Agent and the Structural Engineers / License Surveyor / Architects who has signed in the plan to ensure the safety during construction and after construction and also for the continued structural stability of the buildings. In this regard, applicant along with the Architect and Structural Engineer and Construction Engineer has furnished necessary undertakings for structural sufficiency as well as for supervision in the prescribed formats.

Issuance of Planning Permission by CMDA under the statutory provisions does not confirm any ownership or title over the property, in favour of the applicant. Before issuing Planning Permission for any development, CMDA in this regard, checks only the aspect of applicant’s right over the site under reference to make the development thereon based on  the copies of the documents (such as Sale Deed, Patta, Lease  Deed,  Gift  Deed etc.,  and GPA) furnished by the applicant along with his /her application to prove the same. Thus, CMDA primarily considers only the aspect whether the applicant prima facie has a right to carry out development on the site under reference.

Any person who acquires interest in the property shall ensure independently about the ownership and the applicant’s right before acquiring the same. Further,  if  any  individual claim right (or) title over the property he / she / they shall have to prove it before the appropriate / competent Court to decide on the ownership or get the matter settled in  the Court of Law and CMDA is not the competent authority to decide on this matter.

Annexure-IX

Regulation for the grant of TDR

The owner or lessee of a land who has right to transfer the land (a part or whole), which  is, required for-

any road widening/new road formation as proposed in the Master Plan or DDP or notified by the local body,

any traffic and transport infrastructure development such as bus stops/stands, elevated ways, railways etc., and

any urban infrastructure development such as water supply, sewerage, drainage, electricity, education, health, notified by the State Government Department or Government Agency or local body,

is eligible for the award of Transfer of Development Rights [TDR] in the form of FSI [in lieu        of monetary compensation] to the extent and on the conditions set out below.

The award will entitle the owner of the land to FSI in the form of Development Rights Certificate (DRC), which he may use himself or transfer to any other person  for  utilisation within the Local body concerned.

Development Right Certificate will be granted to the owner or lessee only if the land is not affected by proceedings under Tamil Nadu Land Ceiling Act, 1978 (Under  the  Repeal  and  saving provision) and on production of  certificates  from  the  ULC  Competent  Authority  to  that effect.

Development rights are available for transfer only in cases where the public projects/schemes stated in para -1- above have not been implemented i.e. it  will  be  available only for prospective developments. It shall not apply in the case of existing or retention users, or any compulsory reservation of space for public purpose or recreational use or EWS/social housing etc. in the cases  of  subdivisions/layouts/special  buildings/group developments/ multistoreyed buildings or such other developments prescribed in these Building Rules.

DRC shall be issued by the Competent Authority. In the certificate FSI credit to which the DRC holder is entitled in terms of the area of land surrendered and its location, and restrictions/conditions if any shall be stated.

(a) The FSI credit in the form of DRC shall be equal to the surrendered land area multiplied by an FSI of 1.5 multiplied further by factor arrived at by dividing the guide line value of the land surrendered with the guide line value of the land at  which  the  development right transferred is proposed to be received/utilized. Further as an incentive, TDR shall be based on one-and-a-half-times the Guide Line Value.

Wherever the lands surrendered quality for FSI of 2.00 or more, the extent of additional          FSI allowed in TDR shall be additional FSI 0.25.

(b) For arriving at the FSI credit the Guide Line Value [GLV] of the land surrendered and the GLV of the DRC utilized shall be with reference to the GLVs at the export and import sites in the year of DRC utilisation applied for.

The land required for the project/scheme shall be surrendered before getting the DRC, through a registered gift deed in favour of Executive Authority of the Local body , after removal of structures if any in the land gifted, and, shall be free from any encumbrance.

In case of road widening, after leaving the road widening space surrendered, the compound wall and gates shall be reconstructed at the cost of the owner or lessee before getting the DRC.

If the holder of DRC intends to transfer it to any other person, it shall be done with the clearance of the Executive Authority of the Local body , by obtaining due endorsement  on the DRC after submitting a formal application in the prescribed format. If this procedure is not followed then the transfer will not be valid, and the certificate will be available for use only by the original/earlier holder.

The holder of DRC who desires to utilize the FSI  credit  while making  development  in  a  site shall attach in his application for Building Permit a copy of the valid DRC.

Any DRC obtained by misrepresentation of facts shall be liable for cancellation and Executive Authority of the Local body shall take further action as per Law against the act.

Site in the following areas is not liable for utilization of DRC FSI credit transferred from other areas:

CRZ areas;

Heritage zones around heritage precincts.

Any other area as may be decided by the State Government and notified in  the Government Gazette.

DRC may be used in one or more sites whether vacant or developed or by making additional constructions, in consistence with the Building Rules. Further the FSI of plots shall not exceed 0.5 over and above the normally permissible FSI for that use in those receiving sites.

Before granting Planning Permission for development in the receiving plot, the endorsement on the valid original DRC shall be made  by  Executive  Authority  of  the  Local body regarding the extent  of  utilization  of  FSI  credit,  the balance credit  of  unutilized credit  of FSI, if any.

DRC shall be issued on Rs.100/- stamp paper in an appropriate form prescribed and duly signed by Executive Authority of the Local body. Such a certificate will be a transferable negotiable instrument only after due endorsement by Executive Authority of  the Local body as provided in regulation (9) above.

Executive Authority of the Local body shall maintain a register in an appropriate form with regard to all transactions regarding grant and utilization of Development Rights.

The lands so surrendered for obtaining DRC shall become the public property for the purpose and Executive Authority of the Local body may transfer these lands to the Departments/Government agency concerned on 'as- is- where- is' condition for taking further action on the execution of the project/scheme and maintenance.

The loss of DRC by the holder will not entitle for availing the FSI credit. It shall be the responsibility of the DRC holder to keep it safe and secure. No duplicate DRC will be issued.

In all cases of sites wherein road widening, or link road/new road alignment is proposed in the Master Plan or Detailed Development Plan or notified by the local body, Building Permission for developments within the site shall be considered only if the land affected by the road widening/link road/is transferred to Executive Authority of the Local body through a registered Gift Deed. If the FSI eligible for above said land transferred is availed / received in the remaining part of the available site itself, then the issue of DRC separately does not arise. However the applicant is eligible for the FSI as prescribed in these regulations (i.e. as detailed in the regulation no. (6) above.

These provisions of grant of DRC will not arise in cases of sub divisions/ Layout developments where as part of the road network within the site, road widening or link road or new roads have to be provided.

(a) In other cases where a Building Permission application has not been received for any proposed development in a site the local body concerned may publish a programme for road widening or a new road formation or implementation of any traffic and transportation infrastructure development or any urban infrastructure development granting TDR.

After the above said publication, the owner can make and request to the Executive Authority of local body concerned for grant of Development Rights Certificate.

In cases where the site is already a developed one, irrespective of whether it is an authorized or unauthorised development, the part of the land required for the public  purpose is eligible for the award of DRC.

In cases where there are existing buildings / structures in a site, and because of the surrender of the land for obtaining DRC there may be violations of planning parameters/building rules for the existing buildings retained in the remaining plot, they  shall be construed as in conformity with these rules as long as no addition or alteration or change of use is made, provided these existing buildings / structures should have been approved or in existence as such prior to ……………..[ a date to be prescribed by the Government] (Public purpose over weighs any individual interest / requirement and hence violations if any in the remaining plot require such consideration of deemed provisions)

Existence of any unauthorised building in a plot does not prohibit a land owner from getting the DRC for the land required for the public purpose.  But the existing building in   the remaining part of the plot shall continue to be unauthorised until it gets regularised following due process of law/rules, or demolished.

When utilised in the remaining part of the export site itself:

If the applicant of a planning permission application proposes to utilise the Development Rights of the part of the land he is surrendering / has surrendered, in the remaining part of the site retained by him, then also, the applicant is eligible for

the FSI as prescribed in these regulations [i.e  after  allowing  the  guideline  value  incentives, the eligible FSI would be as given below:

Sl.

No.

When the Site (from which the land surrendered) qualify for FSI of

TDR FSI allowable for the land surrendered

Non MSB            < up to 1.50

2.25

2

MSB                       1.75

3

MSB                  2.00 / 2.25

2.50

4

MSB                      2.50

2.75

In that case the question of issue of a separate DRC doesn’t arise].

When utilised in a different import site:

If the DRC is  utilised in  a different site (i.e.  not  in the remaining  part of  the export   site      itself), then the FSI eligible towards TDR will be as follows:

Sl.

No.

When the Site (from which the land surrendered) qualify for FSI of

TDR FSI allowable for the land surrendered

1

Non MSB            < up to 1.50

2.25 x V

2

MSB                          1.75

2.25 x V

3

MSB                    2.00 / 2.25

2.50 x V

4

MSB                          2.50

2.75 x V

 

In the cases where it is claimed that an export site qualifies for normally  permissible FSI of 2.00 or more, the onus of proving the eligibility of that higher FSI permissible only for Multi Storeyed Buildings as per the DR, lies with the applicant, by submission of detailed plans of the existing developments in the export site.Where V is the multiplication factor arrived at by dividing the guideline value of the land surrendered with the guidelines value of the land at which the DRC is proposed to be received /utilised.

DRC shall be valid initially for a period of 5 years, and may be renewed for a further period of 5 years subject to payment of revalidation fee which may be prescribed with the approval of the government and notified by the local body from time to time.

Application  for  DRC  shall  be  with  necessary  documents  and  particulars  as  prescribed in the Appendix – A.

where DRC has been obtained by fraudulent means

where the property is encumbered in any way restricting the ownership or development rights or where there is a dispute on the title of the land.

Where a land for any development listed in the Regulation no.(1), could not be taken possession under these TDR regulations, Land Acquisition Laws can be invoked and the  land required can be taken possession for the development by the public authorities so that the project or scheme can be implemented without any hindrance/delay.

Annexure-XII

Protection against Hazards

Protection from Earthquakes

In those areas where there are no dangers of soil liquefaction or settlements  or landslides, all building structures and infrastructures should be designed using  the relevant Indian Standards as provided in these rules and the National Building Code.

Soils subjected to liquefaction potential under earthquake shaking shall be improved by compaction to desired relative densities, so as to prevent the possibility of liquefaction.

Buildings and structures shall be founded on deep bearing piles going to non-liquefiable dense layers.

Steep slopes shall be made more stable by terracing and construction of retaining walls and breast walls, and by ensuring good drainage of water so that the saturation of the hill-slope is avoided.

Any other appropriate engineering intervention that may be required to save the buildings, structures, or infrastructure from the fury of the earthquake shall be made.

Protection from Cyclonic Wind Damage / Flooding /Tsunami

Buildings, structures and infrastructures in the cyclone prone areas shall  be  designed according to the Indian Standards and Guidelines as provided in these  rules and the National Building Code.

Light utility structures used for electrical transmission and distribution and towers for communications, Chimneystacks of industrial structures require special design considerations against the cyclonic wind pressures, suctions and uplifts.

In case the buildings, structures and infrastructures are founded on marine clay deposits it will be advisable to adopt either under-reamed or long piles which shall penetrate the marine clay layer and rest on dense sand stratum, or  individual  column footing with a reinforced concrete beam located at the level of the ground, or a continuous reinforced concrete strip footing, using a very low bearing pressure.

Wherever, the topsoil could become slushy due to flooding, the top layer of 30 cm depth of soil shall not be considered for providing lateral stability.

In storm surge prone areas, it will be preferable to construct the community structures, like schools, cyclone shelters, etc. by raising the level of the ground protected by provision of retaining walls at sufficient distance away from the building, taken to such depth that no erosion takes place due to receding storm  surge.  Alternatively, construct the community structures on stilts with no masonry  or bracing up to the probable maximum surge level.

Protection of areas from floods may require one or more of the following actions:

Raising the site above the high flood level.

Construction/improvement of drainage paths to effectively drain the water from the site area

Construction of buildings and structures on deep foundations going below the depth of scour or on stilts with deep enough foundations under water

A valve operating procedure must  be provided in the equipment room for each operation (e.g., recirculation, filtration, backwashing, etc.).

Recirculation pumps shall be kept in good repair and condition. The pump discharge or inlet supply line valve shall be adjusted as necessary to maintain the design flow rate.

Filtration equipment:-

The filtration flow rate shall not exceed the maximum filtration design flow rate specified by the filter manufacturer for public swimming pool usage. Where the filtration flow rate is not known or has not been determined, it shall  not exceed 67 litre per minute per square foot of filter area for high-rate sand filters.

Hair and Lint Strainers:

 Hair and lint strainers shall be cleaned to prevent clogging of the suction line and cavitations. The pump shall be stopped before the strainer is opened to avoid drawing air into the pump and losing the prime.

Flowmeters shall be maintained in an accurate operating condition and shall be readable.

Vacuum and Pressure Gauges:-

The lines leading to the gauges shall be bled occasionally to prevent blockage.

Gas Chlorinators:-

(a) The manager or operator shall post the telephone numbers of the appropriate emergency personnel to contact, in the event of a chlorine gas emergency;

Chlorine cylinders shall be stored indoors in the area designed for that purpose and away from a direct source of heat. They shall be chained or strapped to a rigid support to prevent accidental tipping. Cylinders shall not be moved unless the protection cap is secured over the valve.

The gas mask canister shall be replaced regularly as per the manufacturer’s recommendations;

Chlorinators, gas lines, injectors, vent lines and cylinders shall be checked daily for leaks. In case of a chlorine leak, corrective measures shall be undertaken only by trained persons wearing proper safety equipment. All other persons shall be evacuated from the dangerous area until conditions are again safe.

Positive Displacement Feeders:

 (a) Positive displacement feeders shall be periodically inspected and serviced.

(b) When a chemical feeder is used with calcium hypochlorite solution, to minimize sludge accumulation in the unit, the lowest practicable concentration of solution shall be used, and in no case shall this concentration exceed five percent. If liquid chlorine solution is used, the dilution with water is not critical to the operation of the unit. After thoroughly rinsing with water, a small amount of mild acid solution may be fed through the unit periodically, to dissolve sludge accumulations.

pH Adjustment:-

(a) Soda ash or caustic soda shall be used to raise the pool water pH. Protective equipment and clothing, including rubber gloves and goggles, must be available for the handling and use of these chemicals.

(b) Sodium bisulfate, carbon dioxide gas or muriatic acid shall be used to lower pool water pH. Carbon dioxide cylinders shall be securely chained or otherwise restrained in a manner that will prevent tipping. Protective equipment and clothing, including rubber gloves and goggles, must be available for handling these chemicals.

Miscellaneous Chemicals:-

(a) Chemicals shall be kept covered and stored in the original, labeled container, away from flammables and heat and in a clean, dry, well-ventilated place which prevents unauthorized access to the chemicals.

(b) If polyphosphates are used for sequestering iron, the concentration of polyphosphates shall not exceed ten pm.

Acoustics:- Suitable arrangement shall be made to ensure that safety instructions can be heard, considering the noise level in peak hours.

Monitoring and Reporting:-

(a) Operation reports: The pool manager shall keep the daily record of swimming pool or other pool operational data.

Water quality testing:

 Disinfectant residual and pH tests shall be made on samples collected from the shallow and deep areas of swimming pool, at least twice daily. Where chlorine is used as a disinfectant, testing for combined chlorine shall be performed at least daily. In addition, where chlorinated cyanurates are utilized as a chlorine disinfectant, testing for cyanuric acid concentration shall be performed at least daily. Where ozone is utilized, testing to determine the ozone concentration immediately above the pool water surface shall be performed monthly. Necessary testing kits should be made available for checking the pH and disinfectant residual. The person responsible for testing shall be thoroughly familiar with the procedure for checking. Records of water quality testing shall be kept intact.

Refuse disposal:

The equipment provided for the storage, collection, and  disposal  of  refuse  produced  at  a  swimming pool or bathing beach shall be such that the creation of conditions detrimental to public health, such as rodent harborage, insect breeding areas, odors, air pollution and accidents  are  prevented.  All  refuse  shall  be  stored  in  water- tight, metal or rigid plastic containers having tight-fitting lids. Containers shall be provided as needed throughout food preparation areas and eating areas to provide for enough collection of trash.
