The move was necessitated due to difficulties faced by developers carrying out large-scale projects, including SEZs and IT parks, said Housing and Urban Development Minister, K Radhakrishnan. He moved a bill in the state assembly, to amend the Tamil Nadu Town and Country Planning Act, 1971 for this purpose.

The validity period of planning permission was fixed as three years in 1971, when large-scale development activities were not taking place in the state, he said. “It has been brought to the notice of the government that difficulties are being experienced, by persons carrying out large-scale development activities like special economic zones (SEZs), IT parks, malls and townships, in implementing them within the prescribed period of three years,” he said. Further, project execution was delayed due to various factors like non-availability of labour and material, he said. The government has therefore decided to amend the Act, he added.
