Integrated NOAPS single window clearing system
The Union Minister for Culture launched an integrated NOAPS for National Monuments Authority (NMA) for 517 local bodies in six new states.
National Monuments Authority (NMA) under the Ministry of Culture, Government of India has been setup as per provisions of “The Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains AMASR (Amendment and Validation) Act, 2010”.
In order to automate the process of grant of NO Objection Certificate(NOC) for construction related work in the prohibited and regulated areas, NMA has designed a web enabled application named NOC online Application Processing System (NOAPS).
Six new States – Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Jharkhand and Telangana – will be part of this Integrated Online Application Portal with Urban Local Bodies Count.
Earlier this system was available only for five urban local bodies of Delhi and one urban local body of Mumbai.
This will help in online processing of applications requesting NOC for construction related work in prohibited and regulated area of ASI protected monuments.
In terms of incremental change in index (over 2016-17 level), Haryana holds number one position in general States and Uttarakhand ranks at first position amongst North Eastern and Himalayan States.
On an average, 80% of the states assessed on the Index over the last three years have improved their water management scores, with an average improvement of +5.2 points.
