Online building plan approval system under ‘SUJOG’ launched

Bhubaneswar:12/2/21: The Odisha Government today launched the Online Building Plan Approval System (OBPAS) under its 5T initiative.

This transformative e-Gov initiative is intended to provide the most advanced ICT-enabled services to the citizens of urban Odisha. Online Building Plan Approval System (OBPAS) has been identified as one of the key reforms under the 5T to fast track approval of online building plan applications and to ensure ease of doing business.

The OBPAS is an end to end online system for the entire building plan approval processes including automated building plan drawing scrutiny, auto calculation and payment of fee, streamlined building permit application process, plinth/roof verification and occupancy certificate.

 Speaking on the occasion, Housing & Urban Development Minister Pratap Jena said that the OBPAS caters to requirements of citizens, architects, and technical persons while providing a software-based verification of building plans and details for compliance with the various rules as defined in ODA Act, 1982.

The system facilitates online approvals of building permit and occupancy certificate applications along with automated fee calculations and online payments with an user-friendly interface, he said.

Principal Secretary G Mathi Vathanan said that with this formal launching of OBPAS under SUJOG, Government of Odisha has bolstered its commitment towards revitalizing the public administration to make it entirely citizen centric. As a sequel to this, Housing and Urban Development Department will be migrating all its urban services to SUJOG platform very soon, he said.
