Now complain illegal construction to HP TCP online without disclosing your identity

Shimla – The Department of Town and Country Planning, Himachal Pradesh Government, has provided an online facility where people can report raising of unauthorized structures. The department has added an interface in the already existing website, informed a spokesperson of the department on Tuesday. The complainant may or may not disclose his name while submitting the complaint.

While submitting a complaint, the complainant will have to mention the landmark near such unauthorised constructions. On receiving the complaint, the department officials will take a compulsive action against such activity.

The department expects this social audit would definitely help in people from raising constructions without sanctions. Moreover, in case these are brought to the notice of the department, the concerned officer would be forced to take necessary action in time bound manner, he said.

The department claims it recently made 100% supervision of construction activities compulsory through the professionals, who prepare and submits the plans so that no deviations take place in future.

Keeping in view the limited work force to have 24X7 supervision in the entire planning areas, this intervention would definitely help in noticing the unauthorised constructions.
