5 Things to Know about Regularisation of Unapproved Plots in Tamilnadu Order
(Source: Deccan Chronicle)
To protect innocent citizens who have purchased such unauthorized plots, the TN state government had passed an order on May 4th 2017, notifying rules for Regularisation of Unapproved Plots in Tamilnadu, that were sold and registered before 20th October 2016, for a penal fee and higher development charges.
This means that owners of such unapproved plots and layouts that were registered before 20th October 2016 can heave a sigh of relief, as they are not only given a chance to rectify mistakes, but also benefit from basic infrastructure facilities. The deadline for this official process is Nov 3rd 2017.
The newly notified Tamilnadu Regularization and Unapproved Layout and Plot Rules 2017, requires both land owners and layout promoters to apply for regularization of their unapproved plots.
If they fail to apply, their properties will be denied basic infrastructure facilities such as – power, water supply, sewerage and drainage. This rule now exempts such unapproved plots and layouts from the purview of the Tamil Nadu Town and Country Planning Act, 1971.
All individual plot owners of unapproved layouts and layout promoters now need to submit a sketch of the layout to apply for regularization of their plots online on www.tnlayoutreg.in., to the competent authority concerned within 6 months of this order, along with necessary fees and charges mentioned in the application. Owners of such unapproved plots or layouts can now create an account easily on the portal and register to submit their applications online before Nov 3rd 2017 (deadline). All details including the penalty fees are available on the site. (Source: Times of India)
If the competent authority gives in-principle approval of the layout, it will process applications and pass the regularization order online.
Charges for development, regularization and OSR for such Regularisation of Unapproved Plots in Tamilnadu vary by municipal area. For example, a 1000 Sq-Ft unauthorized (but eligible) plot in a municipal area can now be regularized by paying a sum of approx. Rs. 41,000.
Applicants also need to pay 3% of the plot’s market value as land conversion charges from agricultural to residential. Development charges are extra.
5. Ineligible Plots
But this rule excludes unathorized plots and layouts in government poramboke land, water bodies and OSR areas, and hence such plots cannot be regularized.

Please Note: Property owners need to apply in person for registration/approvals. As Real Estate Agents / Property Consultants, we cannot assist you in the actual registration, and don’t accept any fees for the same.
Note: You can sell your plot only if it is CMDA or DTCP approved. If it is Panchayat approved, you cannot sell it now unless you first regularize it.
