Developers building high-rises in cities and towns often leave construction materials piled up in the vicinity, resulting in damage of roads and pavements. Builders will now have to repair the damaged portions before they are granted a completion certificate for the projects.

Chief minister Mamata Banerjee came up with the idea at the Howrah administrativ meeting held at Sarat Sadan on Thursday.

“I am not against developers. But they often dump construction materials on pavements or stock materials on a portion of the road. It damages the roads.

I would ask officials to conduct an on-site survey and see that the developer undertakes road repairs before issuing the completion certificate for the building,” the CM said.
