New Delhi: The DDA on Tuesday approved a proposal to levy 'use conversion charges' for setting up fuel stations on privately-owned land falling in all zones of urban areas, officials said.
The proposal will now be sent to the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs for its nod. The decision was taken during a meeting of the urban body, chaired by Lt Governor Anil Baijal at Raj Niwas here.
"The Authority today approved levy of use conversion charges for setting up fuel stations on privately-owned land falling in all use zones of urban areas, including urban extention areas, in agricultural areas or green belts," the DDA said in a statement.
The CNG stations shall be permitted in underdeveloped recreational areas, with the exception of ridge or recreational parks, it said.
Also, to promote pollution-free environment, there will be a rebate of 95 per cent in case of electric vehicle charging stations, 50 cent for CNG stations and 75 per cent for mixed stations (both electric and CNG), the statement said.
The DDA Tuesday also approved a proposal to slash additional floor area ratio (FAR) charges for Local Shopping Centre (LSC) and made it equal to the charges for residential mix use area and notified streets, the statement said.
The 'use conversion charges' for LSCs have also been reduced and are made equal to the 'use conversion charges' of residential mix use area and notified streets. The above rates shall remain valid up to June 28, 2020, it said.
The approved proposal will be sent to the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs for its nod, officials said. In other decisions taken by the Authority, it slashed the External Development Charges (EDC) leviable for godowns in Narela at 25 per cent, from Rs 3500 per sqm to Rs 875 per sqm on plot area basis, the DDA said.
A scheme for the involvement of school children and public in DDA's plantation programme was also approved.
Under the scheme, each selected school shall be allocated a site or a park close to the institution by the DDA. The allocation of sites shall be for a period of 10-15 years for a particular school.
"In the first year, it is proposed to implement the scheme in 200 schools which are having eco clubs. An amount of Rs 50 lakh is expected to be incurred, i.e. Rs 25,000 per eco club in a school," the DDA said in a statement.
