BIM - A solution to end Corruption and Illegal Construction

Sophisticated yet simple and Useful

  Being an Engineering Student and an intern at a few construction projects in Pune, I've observed a few drawbacks of the current sanctioning and town planning procedures. Most municipal offices require the applicant to submit a complete detailed draft of the project that is intended to be constructed, the draft includes all the blue-prints and other allied property papers. Usually this process takes a long time unless you have some good networking in the offices to hook up your works on priority. One main drawback is that even after having the proper sanctioning and licensing done from the authorities, you're still not safe to have your construction project going. Many times during the checking of Plinth for plinth certification, chances are you'll be asked for corrections and unnecessary modifications.
  Another aspect of this is that many projects in Pune don't seem to consider sanctioning and are illegally built upon. This could be a major problem as it directly destroys the entire planning and harmony of the city. 
   As  a solution, IT could be implemented to act as a mediator between the authorities and the applicants to ensure justice and transparency between all parties.
