Mumbai: In good news for tenants across the city, applying for transfer of tenancy and housing for project affected people (PAP) across the city is all set to get easier and simpler. As a part of ease of doing business initiative, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is not only decentralising both the processes but is also shifting the application and approval system online and thus making it digital.
Currently, the process dictates that for all the BMC buildings, transfer of tenancy applications go right to the deputy municipal commissioner estate department and improvement committee, which delays the process. To eliminate the delay and make it quick, the civic body has decentralised the system and given rights of approval to respective ward officers. Citizens will not have to go to head or ward offices as after the online portal is functional and the applicants can upload the documents online and track the progress of their application, which will the make the process easier.
