|PUDA is represented in Amritsar by Amritsar Development Authority, which was constituted in 2007 by the Governor of Punjab. The Chief Minister of the state is the Chairman of ADA whereas the executive power resides in the Chief Administrator who is appointed by the Chairman. The objective behind the creation of Amritsar Development Authority is to utilize the vacant land judiciously and create an urban infrastructure in line with the modern housing trend. The Authority also invites application from land owners who want to sell their land in return for a good sum of money.
The land acquired thus is used for building an infrastructure network for planned urban development. Plots are appropriated for the construction of houses and commercial institutions. The construction work is generally carried out by individual buyers and property developers. To provide them necessary land, ADA announces plot scheme from time to time. Residential plots are usually allotted through a draw of lots whereas the process of auction is put in use for the allotment of commercial and institutional plots. The procedure is similar to that followed by PUDA in the allotment of plots at any other location in Punjab.
Amritsar Development Authority Plots
Amritsar Development Authority allots plots for residential and commercial constructions. The residential plots are allotted under a plot scheme based on a draw of lots. The prospective buyers must apply before the closing date of the scheme on a prescribed form available at estate office or a nodal branch of any of the designated banks. The application must be submitted along with earnest money, which is 10 percent of the cost of the plots being applied for. The allotments are made to the applicants whose names are there in the draw result, and probably in the waiting list. 15 percent of the cost of the plot is collected within one month of the issuance of allotment letter and the balance 75 percent is required to be paid in easy installments.
ADA has a master plan for the planned development of areas within its jurisdiction. The allottees are required to follow the building bye laws and other norms of PUDA in order to construct the structure on allotted plots. The construction must be completed within three years of assuming possession of the plots. Extension to this time period is possible under certain conditions. Under single window system, ADA offers speedy processing of issues involving grant of NOC, Transfer of Plot/House/Site, No Due Certificate, Copies of Document, Change of Ownership, Re-allotment, Permission to Mortgage, Sanction of Building Plan, Sanction of Sewerage Connection, and Notice of Completion and Permission to Occupy.
PUDA has recently announced that it would auction a commercial site at Ranjit Avenue on Ajnala Road in Amritsar. The size of the plot is 18,053.2 square yards and it would carry a reserve price tag of Rs. 126.37 crore.
