BHUBANESWAR: The Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) has decided to conduct the first-of-its-kind real estate survey to assess different parameters of a property and suggest measures to improve the urban planning scenario.

As part of the survey, the BDA will assess a range of components of a real estate property such as its sewerage and drainage system, solid waste management, parking facility and security, among others. It will then check the compliance parameters of the property.

Official sources said the primary objective of the survey is to understand the condition of the existing infrastructure of a property in the city and take steps accordingly to improve the same to provide a better urban life to people.

“A consultant will be selected to carry out the survey on BDA’s behalf. It has been given the specific task to assess the said parameters and submit a report within three months following which we will make the next move,” said BDA planning member Gouri Shankar Bhuyan.

Bhuyan said the survey report will come in great help of the BDA as well as other stakeholders.

“The city is growing rapidly. We need to bring up an inclusive development plan for the city. Along with the planned new ones, we need to improve the existing infrastructure,” he said.

BDA officials said they have come up with a sample set of questions, which the surveyor will fill after getting the relevant information on the real estate properties from the ground. The BDA has decided to survey 1,800 properties.

The officials have also said that based on the ground level survey, the number of properties might increase since the survey will take into fold all kinds of residential, institutional and commercial properties.

The questions that need to be answered include whether the property has an occupancy certificate or not, total number of dwelling units, system of sewerage and drainage, space of parking, security, fire safety and other clearances, among others.

“It is a good move by the BDA to conduct the survey. A number of properties are sure to be found in violation with the planning. It needs to be rectified for a planned growth of the city. But it is not going to be an easy task,” said urban planner Dipu Nanda.
