For residents of Pune who are planning to buy property, there is some good news. The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has launched a mobile App — Pune Urban — which would provide information on residential projects approved by the civic body.
“The Pune Urban is the official mobile App of the PMC’s Building Permission Department. This app would enable citizens, architects and builders to instantly connect with the building permission department,” said Prashant Waghmare, city engineer of PMC.
He said the Pune Urban mobile App would make it easy for citizens to verify the real estate projects approved by the PMC. “The Google map of the city, superimposed with the development plan, will help citizens easily check details of buildings approved by the BMC. People can also get information on the engineer concerned in charge of building construction activities in the area,” said Waghmare.
Anyone accessing information on the mobile App will be able to view a list of projects and buildings approved by PMC’s building permission department, he said, adding, “Citizens will be able to check the building permission given by the PMC. They will also be able to locate the actual location of the project with civic facilities in the vicinity… It is going to help potential buyers as they make decisions on purchasing property.”
For architects and builders, Waghmare said they could view and get site plan certificate, zone certificate of any village and survey no. They can track any projects or buildings approval status on the internet, he said adding anyone can view the list of documents needed while seeking approval for the construction of a building.
