No ‘relief’ for houses near 13 protected monuments in Delhi

Getting a no-objection certificate for construction if you live in a monument regulated zone was made easier by National Monuments Authority through its online system last year. But of the 174 centrally-protected monuments in the capital, there are 13 that require physical verifications as NMA doesn’t have land details or area maps. NMA has written to the Delhi government many times, asking for land details so that colour-coded maps could be prepared. Archaeological Survey of India and Indian Space Research Organisation had developed colour coding of maps of centrally-protected monuments in Delhi and Mumbai. These indicated prohibited and regulated zones around monuments. AMASR Act prohibits construction within 100m, and constructions in 101-300m area requires an NOC from the competent authority.
