Government brings online approval for erecting monuments soon


The government will soon provide a single-window clearance for urban development projects and setting up of monuments by people, Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said in the Lok Sabha.

“Earlier for all these, people had to come to Delhi. Now there will be online approval,” he said while piloting the Real Estate Regulator (Regulation and Development) Bill in the lower house of parliament.

“Henceforth online approval system will be introduced for citizens and departments who want to install a monument in memory of some leaders”, he said. It is for making things easier.

Naidu said his ministry is in favour of bringing in single-window clearance in governance and to bring about “ease of doing business in the country”, it will take all necessary steps to unleash reforms.

“We can no longer perform without reforms,” he said.

The government last week said “online approvals for construction near monuments” will be given within 72 hours.
