In a major push to the commitment of good governance, District Administration Anantnag and Pahalgam Development Authority Sunday approved several long pending PMAY cases here.More than 30 PMAY cases belonging to economically weaker sections were granted approval Building Operation Controlling Authority (BOCA) for construction. These houses had been pending approval since 4 to 5 years as the PMAY design was not in consonance with Pahalgam Masterplan 2032 guidelines.The District Administration while taking cognisance of delay in sanctioning of these cases approached the office of the Chief Town Planner and came up with a new design that was in coherence with Pahalgam Masterplan 2032.The move will not only benefit approved families of approved cases but will also ensure that new cases will be reviewed and sanctioned as per the new sanctioned design.It is pertinent to mention that in the last 5 years, only one PMAY case had been sanctioned due to this hurdle. With this new design, more than 30 cases have been approved and 10 others are in pipeline for approval.Concerted efforts by DC Anantnag and CEO, PDA were instrumental in logically tackling the long standing issue.
