THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Local administration department special secretary has informed the Thiruvananthapuram Corporation Mayor in writing that the status quo of the Government Order of February 26, 2014 freezing the Master Plan of the City continues.
The Mayor had earlier in the day organised a sit-in in front of the chief minister’s office, alleging that the order was relaxed.
The 2016 order was issued after people started complaining that the Master Plan was coming in the way of getting building permits. It was specifically mentioned in that order that it was being issued in order to ease the process for sanctioning building permits. There isn’t any change in that order, as well.
