Lt-Governor Najeeb Jung on Tuesday reviewed the operationalisation of incentives for ‘green’ buildings, followed by a presentation by TERI (The Energy and Resource Institute) on policies adopted by other states and local bodies. The proposal are related to providing incentives with respect to enhanced FAR (floor area ratio), ground coverage and property tax rebate, among others.
Development agencies have been asked to include underground water storage tanks and roof-top water harvesting system in their layout plans, under the draft regulations for “green” buildings proposed in Master Plan of Delhi-2021.
Also all hospitals, commercial projects, industrial buildings, hotels, restaurants and auto workshops will have to make arrangements for primary effluent treatment within the plot. “The L-G has directed the Delhi Development Authority to finalise the draft regulations for approval by the Central government,” an official said.
According to the draft regulations, developmental agencies also have to make arrangements for recycling of treated waste water with separate lines for potable water and recycled water and recharge groundwater through rain water harvesting.
