The most commonly marketed plots in and around Chennai include Panchayat, CMDA and DTCP approved plots. There are numerous questions on the layouts approved by nodal authorities or town planning authorities.

The commonly marketed layouts which do not have approval are often marketed as Panchayat approved lands. This terminology has been unofficially associated with layouts which are unapproved by town planning authority (e.g. DTCP) or nodal authority (e.g. CMDA). If you had not read about how Panchayat approval is illegal unapproved layout, you can read about it.

The Directorate of Town and Country Planning (DTCP) is responsible for carrying out developmental activities on land and buildings in Tamil Nadu with the exception of municipal areas in Chennai. The area within the Chennai Corporation comes under the nodal authority CMDA (formerly MMDA). The approval from DTCP or CMDA carry the benefit of owning a land which can be used for the specific purpose that is designated by the planning authority. The approval process involves time and cost which are often the main reasons due to which many developers prefer to sell unapproved layouts. The state government allows approval of such unapproved plots by floating schemes which offer regularization against a fixed fee. The approval process can also be initiated by contacting the respective planning authorities without the special schemes but is often not an easy process for individuals. The State Government is planning for such a scheme in Tamil Nadu and the details can be found in the article titled “Get approval for unapproved plots in Chennai”.

The application for regularization often includes fees titled as penalization charges which will consider the total plot area. The penalization charges include betterment charges and development charges. Since this approval causes reduction in open spaces within the city, a fee called OSR (Open Space Reservation) charge is levied.

The major benefit of getting approval from DTCP or CMDA is the entitlement to get building approval. This can be an assurance that the building cannot be demolished without proper procedure laid out for approved layouts. The demolition of buildings constructed on approved land is quite uncommon and is often discouraged, without strong justification, by the legal system.  These benefits are unavailable for unapproved layouts. The property value will also increase substantially if approval is sought and this will increase the resale value. The scope of transparency in transaction is increased and resale is also easier. Banks will only be able to fund building construction or renovation when the land is approved. Banks might also not allow or provide loans for residential construction on nanjai/punjai land or agricultural land.

The disadvantages of owning unapproved land are numerous. The penalty levied increases with the length of period for which the unapproved plot is owned including the period prior to the execution of sale deed. It is often considered illegal to provide water and sewer connections to such buildings constructed on unapproved land. As building plan approval will not be provided for such unapproved plots, possibility of demolition of such buildings cannot be discounted.

Sir,
Thanks a lot for responding to my query.
But I am unable to see your comment may be because of some technical issue.
My question is I am planning to purchase panchayat approved land in trichy corporation. The plot size is 2000 sqft. I plan to build house after some 5 to 10 years. Is getting DTCP approval is easy and what is the approximate charges for approval and Do i need to pay arrears also while going for approval after say 10 years. The layout was prepared on 2003 but this land comes under trichy corporation on 2012 only.

sir , thank u for your immediate reply, they said they have obtained a sanction(for that 860 sq feet of land) with car park in the ground floor and another 2 floors(duplex), is that possible. is it necessary to put 20 pile foundations to the depth of 20 feet . will it affect the adjoining buildings. I don't think this is an AP plot or an EWS plot. can u also tell what AP plot is.

I have seen some properties (vaccant land) to buy for residential purpose. Some Promoters got panchayat approval for their layout. Is Panchayat approval layout eligible for bank loan and planning approval?

Dear Mr. Vijay,

I have seen some properties with constructed houses, the builder claimed it as panchayat approved and bank loans are available. When I further enquired saying that I heard there is no such (panchayat) approval in place and how bank loans are available for these properties. They replied it is DC (District Commissioner) conversion.

Can you please explain on this, I am really confused whether to opt for these properties or not?
