New house repair form

Mayor Subrata Mukherjee announced on Monday the introduction of a form in the Calcutta Municipal Corporation that a house-owner will have to fill before carrying out repairs.

Though no formal permission is required from the civic body’s building department for carrying out repairs, house-owners are often misled by touts. The new form will break their stranglehold, the mayor said.

A house-owner is required only to fill in the form and get a ‘permitted’ stamp on it for repairing his home. The service will be provided across the table and a civic employee will be slapped with a showcause notice if he sits on a form duly filled in and submitted by a house-owner.

It will be the house-owner’s responsibility, however, to restrict the repairs to the norms specified in the form.
