The government has introduced a system for online regularisation of individual plots on unapproved layouts situated outside the Comprehensive Development Plan areas in Puducherry and Karaikal.
Under this scheme, individual plots, situated on unapproved layouts which fulfil the criteria, are regularised by the Puducherry and Karaikal Planning Authorities and regularisation order is issued after collecting the prescribed fee and charges.
Hitherto, receipt and processing the applications, collection of fee and issue of regularisation order was done manually, a press note said.
