Najeeb Jung asks DDA to finalise draft guidelines for green buildings

New Delhi: Development agencies in their layout plans of plots measuring more than 3000 sqm have to contruct underground water storage tank and roof-top water harvesting system as per the draft regulations for “green” buildings, as proposed in the Master Plan of Delhi-2021.

Also all hospitals, commercial, industrial, hotels, restaurants and auto workshops will have to make arrangements for primary effluent treatment within the plot. “Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung has directed Delhi Development Authority to finalise the draft regulations for approval by the Central Government,” said a LG house official.

As per the draft regulations, developmental agencies have to also make arrangements for recycling of treated waste water with separate lines for potable water and recycled water and recharge ground water through rain water harvesting.

Also all hospitals, commercial, industrial, hotels, restaurants and auto workshops will have to make arrangements for primary effluent treatment within the plot.

Further, treated sewage effluent should be recycled for non-potable uses like gardening, washing of vehicles and cooling towers. “These are to be implemented by all the concerned local bodies as part of processing of building permits within their respective jurisdiction,” said the official.

The MPD-2021, as a part of mid-term review, was amended vide Gazette Notification dated September 23 last year to incorporate green building concepts. Lt governor also reviewed the operationalization of incentives for ‘green’ buildings following which TERI made a presentation highlighting provisions related to Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA) rating, policies adopted by other state governments and local bodies.

“The proposal relates to providing incentives with respect to enhanced FAR, ground coverage, and property tax rebate etc. “Further, the monitoring system to ensure continuous on site compliance and performance and disincentives for non-compliance were also discussed,” the official added.

    I personally feel that DDA should be impartial and also quote other indigenous rating systems like IGBC should be quoted along with GRIHA.
    this will inturn help the country to increase the green building footprint in India and make in globally visible.
    and doing so it will also increase the awareness amongst the local public.
    hope the DDA is impartial towards supporting organisations or rating systems and supports them instead by quoting IGBC and incresing the green building footprint in India.
    Jai Hind !

    Dear Sir

    I came across DDA notification regarding public comments on Uniform Building Bylaws-2013 and Development Control Regulation of Master Plan for Delhi-2021.

    From the para 8(6) Services Plan in page 48 of master plan document, I understand that DDA is incentivising green buildings certified only by GRIHA which is quite surprising.

    I was personally involved in several green building projects of IGBC in Delhi & across the country over the years, hence I would suggest DDA to incentivise projects certified by IGBC (Indian Green Building Council) for the following reasons:

    1. IGBC is the first green building council in India which has been leading the green building movement in India for the least 14 years

    2. The number of projects going green with IGBC are 10 times more than the number of projects going green with other green building rating agencies in India

    3. IGBC rating systems are technically sound which can be applied to all types of buildings & townships.

    4. IGBC ratings are accepted by several Ministries & Urban development bodies across India

    5. Over 1,980 member organisations of IGBC which include architects, developers, engineers, institutions etc., are strongly contributing to the green building movement

    6. My personal experience is that IGBC certification process is robust, seamless & overall customer experience is great

    In light of above, I request DDA to strongly consider extending incentives to IGBC certified projects as well. This is good for Delhi and for Nation (as many other urban development authorities may emulate DDA green building guidelines in their respective regions)

    Jai Hind!

    As we all know as per McKinsey report, 600 – 700 million sq.m of commercial and residential space need to be built in India. To promote faster and greener construction process, all green building ratings should be mentioned in the draft guideliens for Green Buildings, so that every building in the country GO GREEN – Saurav (Architect & Infrastructure Planner)

  4. Shreyasi Joshi says:

    I feel other rating systems such as Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), LEED, Eco-Housing should also include in this document. IGBC & LEED success is commendable and highly in demand as compare to GRIHA. Also, most of the market is captured by IGBC and also well known for Rating Systems for different types of buildings. I think we should give them this benefit and cheer them to flourish further and to make India Greenest!

    I would like to congratulate you on your document of Uniform Building Bylaws & Development Control Regulation of Master Plan for Delhi 2021 dated 13 Nov 2014.

    This is an excellent initiative by DDA to call for public comments.

    However , I would like to draw your kind attention that your document recognizes only GRIHA as the premier green rating certification body in the country which is not the case as India has multiple green rating programs like Indian Green Building Council, LEED, Eco-Housing, GRIHA etc; Also, amongst all the ratings systems exist in India, you may be aware that IGBC is leading with 2,900 odd projects with 2.4 Billion sq.ft and leading the Green building movement in the country. In fact IGBC is second in the world with respect to the Registered Green Foot print.

    As a respectable authority it would be unfair on the part of DDA to consider only one rating system on green buildings to draft Master Plan, it will be a big morale boost to the certifying agency like Griha while undermining the existence of other certifying agency like IGBC and LEED which are more widely used in the country.

    Therefore I request you to reconsider your decision on Griha as the premier certifying body on green building and provide FAR incentives to all other rating systems like IGBC . A more NEUTRAL approach will be much appreciated.

    Sub: Response to call for Public Comments Master Plan for Delhi (MPD)-2021 – Reg

    Dear Sir,

    I have come across your document of Uniform Building Bylaws & Development Control Regulation of Master Plan for Delhi 2021 dated 13 Nov 2014.

    This is good initiative by DDA to call for public comments.

    I would like to draw your kind attention that your document highlights GRIHA as only green rating in the country, However India is represented with multiple green rating programs like Indian Green Building Council, LEED, Eco-Housing, GRIHA etc; Also, amongst all the ratings systems exist in India, you may be aware that IGBC is leading with 2,900 odd projects with 2.4 Billion sq.ft and leading the Green building movement in the country.

    As a respectable authority like DDA should not draft Master Plan just going by one rating system, it will give mileage to the rating system and give a false image to the nation like us. Be NEUTRAL to all rating agencies in the country.

    Therefore I request you to immediatley change the definition of rating agency and provide FAR incentives to all other rating systems in the country. Be NEUTRAL to all rating agencies in the country.

    Regards,
    Himanshu

    It seems that all Rating Agencies & Rating Systems are not noted OR DDA is yet to compile the details about practical implementers of standard rating systems in India. CII-Green Business Centre in Hyderabad is the oldest Green Building in India and at CII-GBC, the technical capacity built since decade are the only one who can properly implement Green Building Guidelines. CII-GBC is doing its since more than a decade and guidelines for Commercial building, Schools, Hospitals etc are very well established since years. CII-GBC, Hyderabad is the only one agency which is eligible to rate any Building in India, as Green.

    We must make a mark from Delhi, if the Prime ministers ambition of developing India is true. We must make an example of Delhi and replicate it in other parts of the country
