The working committee will also provide a regulatory framework to stop developers’ tendencies to oversell plots. In addition to serving as a regulator throughout the post-development stage, it will provide a system to oversee and manage developed housing societies.
The working committee will also evaluate high-rise building management structures and suggest resident-friendly management guidelines. The group will also solicit feedback from the Association of Builders and Developers (ABAD) and Private Housing Societies representatives before submitting its findings in a week.
The Additional Director General for Housing, the Director of DG Headquarters, the Director of Master Planning, the Chief Town Planner, the Director of Law (High Court), the Chief Metropolitan Officer, and the Senior Legal Advisor make up the working group.
