South Delhi civic body to charge upto Rs 2 lakh for installing lift at CGHS, DDA flats – ET RealEstate

NEW DELHI: South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) may soon start levying development charges at the time of granting permission to DDA flats and cooperative group housing societies for installing lifts. A proposal in this regard was passed in the standing committee meeting on Tuesday.

The charges will range from Rs 1-2 lakh depending upon the category mentioned in the classification for calculating property tax. At present, only Rs 5,000 is being charged as processing fees at the time of submission of an application.

Lifts are installed in common areas, which are maintained by civic bodies.

“Lifts require frequent maintenance and hence, the charges will be applicable. Other cities like Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad take a number of charges, including development cess, FSI cess, fungible FSI and development charges, while sanctioning the building layout plan. The cash-strapped south corporation needs funds for maintaining common services and areas,” stated the proposal.
