The Chennai City Corporation is set to improve the enforcement of rules pertaining to building by laws and compliance to the norms and violations may dwindle in the city as the State government cleared the Corporation’s proposal for a new administrative structure, which will facilitate the use of three regional offices more effectively, with separate executive engineers for town planning enforcement and town planning approval.

There are over 11 lakh properties in the 15 zones of the city and it is said that at least five lakh residential and commercial properties in the city have violated building norms and termed as DANGEROUS BUILDINGS.
