“Transfer the powers presently vested in DDA to this Authority”

DURA would be empowered to decide cases of regularisation of unauthorised constructions beyond normal margins
The Authority should prescribe standard procedures to be followed for considering requests for change in land use

NEW DELHI: The Tejinder Khanna Committee in its report has suggested establishment of a Delhi Urban Regulatory Authority (DURA) to deal with matters concerning changes in development control norms, changes in land use under the Delhi Development Authority Act, 1957, and changes in Building Code Regulations.

It has said that this apex body with representatives drawn from professional town planners, structural engineers, the Delhi Development Authority and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi should be vested with appropriate powers under both the DDA Act, 1957, and the MCD Act, 1958.

Suitable conditions

The Regulatory Authority would be empowered to decide cases of regularisation of unauthorised constructions beyond normal margins of compounding and to permit changes in land use, wherever considered justified, on imposition of suitable conditions.

It has been suggested that the powers presently vested in the DDA under Section 11-A of the DDA Act, 1957, be transferred to this Authority and it should prescribe standard procedures to be followed for considering requests for change in land use including eliciting the views of the local communities concerned, and evaluating all relevant aspects of public safety, environment and convenience.
