SMC to declare TP schemes for outer ring road

Media reports indicate that the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) would soon declare the town planning (TP) schemes for developing area along the stretch of the Outer Ring Road in the city.

After that the civic body would hold consultation with the developers and land owners for this project.

SMC and Surat Urban Development Authority (SUDA) would make 11 town planning (TP) schemes, three under SMC and eight under SUDA, on both sides of the 29 km stretch of Outer Ring Road in the first phase of the project.

This follows the approval by the state government for the model proposed by SUDA for the development in the area adjoining the road. SUDA had suggested that laws be simplified to usher in quick development of the areas along the road.

On the basis of proposals given by SUDA, the state government has made amendments in General Development Control Regulation (GDCR) to attract more developers.

It proposed free Floor Space Index (FSI) of 0.6 and then allowed purchase of FSI up to 4 by paying 40 per cent of the jantri rate. This will lead to buildings as high as 20 storey coming up.

The TP schemes would reportedly cover 500 metre on both sides of the road and this envisages development of at least 2 lakh square metre of land.
