Bhubaneswar: July 20: The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to tighten the housing norms to combat the severe waterlogging that is plaguing the state capital this monsoon.

According to BMC Commissioner Vijay Amruta Kulange, no permission will be granted to build a house if there is no special place for drains and roads.

Owners will face strict penalties if they use their homes for purposes other than those for which they were built, according to Kulange.

According to the BMC, water harvesting projects are required in houses larger than 300 square meters. Similarly, property owners with 20,000 square meters or more should have their sewage treatment plant.

The BMC Commissioner also warned that if pre-approved plans for houses, apartments, educational institutions, commercial establishments, and industrial establishments are violated within the BMC limits, strict action will be taken.

“Our major issues are parking, sewage, and liquid waste management. Pre-approved plans for the construction of houses are not being followed properly. There are several cases of parking violations.  So, we had a meeting in this regard yesterday and request everyone to see if they have violated any rules,” said Amruta Kulange.
