Drainage approval must for buildings sanction along EM Bypass

Kolkata Municipal Corporation buildings department has decided not to sanction any high-rise or residential project along the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass without a nod from the drainage department.

Though this rule will also be applicable for construction of housing projects in the city proper, the civic body has decided to keep a special vigil on areas off Bypass, including Nayabad, Mukundapur and Panchasayar, and other added areas such as Behala and Joka.

Vast stretches along the EM Bypass have hardly any drainage infrastructure, a perennial problem that often inundates areas such as Mukundapur, Nayabad, Panchasayar, Madurdaha and parts of Patuli. Similarly, stretches of Joka and Behala are no exception where storm water remained stagnant for more than 72 hours.
