Strict GHMC building norms 

The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has requested property owners to seek approvals when changing buildings usage from residential to commercial online by visiting the Website. 

As per a press release of GHMC “In case self-declaration is not filed within the stipulated time, necessary action for closing/sealing of such premises will be taken.” 

Owners of such buildings are required to file a self-declaration application online through the GHMC website from November 1 to December 31. 

However Fifty percent of the impact fee and compounding fee should be paid at the time of filing the online application and the remaining amount must be paid on or before March 31, 2022. 

A 10 per cent reimbursement will be given to the applicant who pays the entire amount in advance at the time of applying. The Impact Fee collected will be deposited into the Strategic Nala Development Programme account.  

This change of building usage happened as per GHMC order released in July announcing 111 roads as commercial roads to the commercial stretches.
