By Our Correspondent

Agartala February 21 ,2019 : In a major concession to home-buyers, promoters and real estate businessmen, the state government has amended the building rules to facilitate construction of higher multi-storied buildings. This has been done to pave the way for optimize utilization of urban land and construction of higher multi-storied buildings. The rules had been amended twice earlier in 2004 and 2017 but the restriction on height of 14.5 metres considering Tripura’s location in highly vulnerable seismic zone-5 but, faced with growing pressure, the state government has amended the rules again.

As per the earlier rules the length of roads including drains in front of a 15 metre high building was required to be 10 metres but in the amended rules this has been brought down to 14.5 metres. The amended rules have given more powers to Agartala Municipal Corporation (AMC), Municipalities and Nagar Panchayats in giving permission for highrise constructions as part of which the civic bodies can give permission for 18 metre high (ground + five stories) buildings. But plan for construction of higher buildings will require special permission from the state government. Apart from this, relaxations on floor area and land outside the building have also been given.

The chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb said that the amendments to the rules were urgently required because of population growth and evolving socio-economic realities, adding that special care would be taken to ensure construction of earthquake-resistant buildings.
