MODEL BUILDING BYLAWS 2016

Building  Bye-Laws  are  legal  tools  used  to  regulate  coverage,  height,  building  bulk,  and  architectural  design  and  construction  aspects  of  buildings  so  as  to  achieve  orderly  development  of  an  area.  They  are  mandatory  in  nature  and  serve  to  protect  buildings  against  fire,  earthquake,  noise,  structural  failures  and  other  hazards.  In  India,  there are still many small and medium sized  towns which do not have building bye-laws and  in  the  absence  of  any  regulatory  mechanism,  such  towns  are  confronted  with  excessive  coverage,  encroachment  and  haphazard  development  resulting  in  chaotic  conditions, inconvenience for the users, and disregard for building aesthetics, etc. It is in this context, TCPO has made an effort to prepare “Model Building Bye-Laws- 2016” for the  guidance  of  the  State  Governments,  Urban  Local  Bodies,  Urban  Development  Authorities,  etc  which  is  an  improvement  over  the  previous  Model  Building  Bye  Laws brought out in 2004.
