Overview

To streamline the processes, reduce efforts and time for processing Building Plan Approval and adhere to the guidelines of EODB and comply with the SLA defined, the Department of Housing & Urban Development, eGovernments Foundation has introduced the online Building Plan Approval System (DIGIT-BPA). The application covers the Common Application Form (CAF) and allows easy online submission, verification and approval from all concerned agencies through a single application form. As an online system, the DIGIT-DCR can be accessed at any time anywhere. The key highlight of the system is the Auto Scrutiny in Open Source Formatted File System with Open Source Tools which totally eliminates the costly licensing requirements of a CAD Tool for the citizen, Registered Engineers as well as Planning Department Officials.
The complete building plan approval management system is a web-based system where registered ‘Architects/Structural engineers/Surveyors’ submits the plans and basic proposal information over the internet. Automatic reading of CAD-based drawings, web Technologies, seamless workflows, Management Information Systems and Decision Support Systems, Business Intelligence, Document Management Systems, Handheld devices are some of the trending technologies that are envisioned in the implementation of DIGIT-BPA to make a marked difference in the functioning of Building Plan Approval departments. It provides access to all authorized stakeholders including department staff, Architects/Consultants, Building owners and Senior Management team based on their role entitlement. Being an online system, DIGIT BPA is available anywhere, any place and on any device to the various stakeholders mentioned above. The intuitiveness of the DIGIT-BPA system becomes apparent where even a layperson is able to easily track the status of their submission.
