Panaji (Goa) From now on, No Objection Certificate (NoC) from the Chief Town Planner is mandatory before sale/ registration of any plots in the State.
The amended the Town and Country Planning (amendment) Act 2017 has come into force from March 22, making NOC from Chief town planner mandatory. In this regard, a notification is been issued by TCP Secretary IAS Ashok Kumar.
In an office memorandum issued by State Registrar Ashutosh Apte, it is been said that all the civil registrar-cum-sub registrars and district registrar are informed to take the note that NOC from the chief town planner (planning) is required to be insisted upon before registration of any plots.
The move is basically to curb the illegal conversation and sale of orchard, agricultural land.
