A Chance Find of 1,800-year-Old Artefacts
  • Planning approvals for special buildings (ground plus four floors) and multi-storeyed buildings (above four floors) will be issued by the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority and the Directorate of Town and Country Planning only if they are provided with a solar energy system.
  • The Housing and Urban Development Department issued a Government Order to this effect recently.
  • The developer also has to use a minimum of one-third of the terrace area for installing the solar cells.
