The development body of the garrison city has offered online clearance of documents of buildings and plots with a precise timeline to facilitate the citizens.
The Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) Chairman Tariq Mehmood Murtaza has inaugurated the online facility at One Window Operations Centre (OWOC).
He said it has been launched with the collaboration of Punjab Information and Technology Board.
He said in line with Prime Minister’s policy RDA is creating ease for doing business which will boost the investment besides generating new opportunities for employment. The services at centre include approval of maps, transfer of plot or any other work-related to RDA.
People will be able to get information about their work from the OWOC.
RDA chairman said OWOC is to facilitate people so that they don’t have to go around every office for their work but only submit their applications here and get a copy of the decision on their application from the same office. He said 30 days have been fixed in this regime for the approval of the map and construction completion certificates, 45 days for the NOC of change in land use and 60 to 75 days have been fixed for the permits of the residential societies. I am trying to make this online facility process better so that the people don’t have to visit the office and inconvenience is avoided, he added.
