Gujrat government approves the proposition of constructing 70 floors or high building. These are the five cities which gets the clearence:
“Expert says that planning and execution of public infrastructure should be allowed like tall buildings”. The current rule had the permit to built only 23 floors for tall buildings. The state government has decided to amend the Common GDCR (general development control regulations) to allow construction of high-rise structures of 70 or more floors.
The new rules regarding tall buildings approved by the government will be applicable to structures that are over 100 metres in height. A special technical committee had set up to give approval to such projects.
These buildings will probably used for residential, commercial, and recreational purposes or a combination of the same. This decision aims to put Gujarat on the global map along with UAE and Singapore, countries that are known for skyscrapers.
The current tall building in Gujrat is located in Gandhinagar. The building has 28 floors and the height is 122 meters. The chief minister of Gujarat Vijay Rupani has said that the new rules will ensure optimum utilisation of land. Which will help lower property prices.
Real estate consultants, said that the cost of high rises is steep and locations where real estate values are not high. The cost of construction itself may render the concept unfeasible.
They cautioned the five cities of Gujarat to be careful. The cities should not indulge in the rate race to go higher. Cities should engage in proper town- planning before sanctioning high-rise projects. Also, ensure that they don’t meet the same fate as Mumbai.
