Have u seen any pics? Are there any construction updates available? The problem is these projects are mostly the first projects of some local builders, so they don't have proper websites running. Subham Group, at present, seems to be one of the more professional groups around in Ghy..nice updates there.

GMDA help for building safety audit - Firm engaged to counsel builders and assist in handling related queries

July 30: Does the multi-storied building or the apartment you are living in require structural safety audit? If yes, how to do it or how much money will you have to spend on the exercise?

In order to cater to these queries, the Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has opened three helplines. Any building owner or construction firm can call up the numbers and Environmental Research and Evaluation Centre, the firm engaged by GMDA to carry out the safety audit, will provide free counselling on the requirement of safety audit of the buildings.

The centre has started the safety audit drive according to the guidelines of the National Building Code of the Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS).

“We have opened the helplines keeping in mind the confusion prevailing among the individual building owners, builders and construction firms regarding safety audit of existing buildings. Recently, we issued a public notice asking them to come forward for safety audit and if they have any questions on the drive, they can use the helplines for free counselling,” a GMDA source said today.

The engineers will carry out tests of the structure in different stages using various non-destructive test equipment. The tests will comprise compressive strength of the concrete, workability condition, bending and carbonisation to find out the durability of the buildings. If required, the experts will also conduct sand and cement tests.


Later, the data will be sorted and analysed for proper identification of weakest points and safety level of the buildings and those requiring retrofitting (a technology for modification of the existing structure) and other remedial measures to ensure safety would be identified.

“The drive is being carried out in phases. Initially, we are conducting technical audit of under-construction apartments and in the second phase, we will conduct the audit of all the existing buildings (both private and government). But all buildings may not require the technical audit and people can use the helplines to call up the evaluation centre’s staff who will visit the buildings and do the initial testing and see if they require the safety audit or not. The building owners will have to pay only Rs 1,000 for the preliminary tests,” the official said.

An official of the GMDA said even as the city was witnessing real estate boom, it has been found that more than 50 per cent of the construction was not properly following the provisions of the BIS’s National Building Code and, hence, require technical safety audit. “We should keep in mind that earthquake does not kill but unsafe buildings do. We urge the builders to do the safety audit and acquire the technical safety certificate from the GMDA and those planning to buy a new flat should also check the certificate before spending money for housing,” the official said.

they have started removing hoardings, if they could streamline electric poles and wires, it would give a very clean look to the city.

New building bylaws for Guwahati soon



Post Bureau, Guwahati (Aug 8): The Assam government on Wednesday said that it is working for a new building bylaw for Guwahati. The government expects that the bylaw will be ready soon. The Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA), in the early this year, stopped giving new permissions for buildings, and said that fresh permissions would be given only after preparations of a new building bylaw.


Addressing a press conference at Dispur on Wednesday, newly appointed Guwahati Development Department (GDD) minister Ajanta Neog said that the Assam government has formed a committee for examining the pending building permissions with the GMDA and the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC).

“The first meeting of the committee held on July 19 this year made several recommendations for giving building permissions within Guwahati,” said Neog. The minister also said that as per the recommendations of the committee, permissions may be given up to ground + 2 floors purely for residential buildings.

“However, building permissions will be restricted in hill areas, eco-sensitive and green belt areas, all existing water bodies, 15 metres from river bank, and 10 metres from existing natural drains,” said the minister. The minister also said that the committee is examining building permissions for commercial and high-rise buildings, and will submit their report on this soon.


“The report of the committee is awaited. Once it is ready, action will be taken as per the decisions and recommendations,” said the minister. The minister also said that Guwahati has seen abnormal growth in the past 100 years, and the charge of the GDD department is a very challenging job.

“I am new to the department, and I am trying to understand the problems in the city. The city has several problems. It is a big challenge for me,” said the minister.

Plan to turn old market into complex


Aug. 10: The stink, slush and snarls that torment people at Uzan Bazar vegetable market will soon be a thing of the past, with the Guwahati Municipal Corporation planning to convert the haat-like area into a state-of-the-art multi-storeyed complex.


The complex will house a parking lot for 50 vehicles, 120 shops, offices, conference rooms and adequate number of toilets.


“A blueprint of the project has been prepared, which will be sent to the state government for approval,” a GMC official told The Telegraph.

The landmark market, where residents throng for their essentials particularly fish and vegetables, is plagued by the stench of urine, in a corner of the market beneath the GMC office and puddles of water, which appear soon after a shower.

The market, at present, has just one toilet to cater to 100-odd traders. “The stench and dirt obviously turn off people. The irony is that people urinate in the open, just a couple of metres away from my shop,” Kanak Sarma, a trader said.

Dispur had sanctioned Rs 10 crore during the last budget for “development of the market”.

“Once the project is approved, we plan to use about Rs 8 crore from the amount sanctioned to set up a G-3 (ground floor-plus-three storeys) complex by April 2013. Tenders will be floated and firms invited for construction of the complex,” he said.


Another problem is the haphazard parking of vehicles on the two roads adjacent to the market — Sati Radhika Shanti Road and Bhuban Road — causing congestion in the area.

“Once the parking lot is set up, the congestion on the two roads should be taken care of. There is a natural slope from the western side of the market, which will make it convenient for constructing the parking lot in the basement,” the corporation official said.

The civic body, however, has done away with the idea of developing the markets in the city under PPP (public-private partnership) model.

“Various hurdles, such as land issues and opposition by traders and pressure groups, has made us do away with the idea of developing markets, be it Ganeshguri or Lakhtokia, under the PPP model. Hence, we have decided to develop markets in a phased manner on our own,” the official said.


The Uzan Bazar traders’ committee, however, had taken up the matter of the market’s uplift since the past five years. “It has been five years now since discussions with GMC on the market’s development started. As a matter of fact, prior to Assembly elections last year, the civic body had given us a written assurance that a new complex would come up in 18 months but to no avail,” Dhiren Baruah, president of Uzanbazar Byabxayi Samiti, told The Telegraph.

“About four months back, we even submitted a list of 180 traders to the then GMC commissioner Puru Gupta and asked the corporation to set up the complex in two years.,” Baruah said.
