The Jabalpur Development Authority (JDA) was established in 1980, with an aim to foster a structured and sustainable development of Jabalpur city. The Authority works under the Housing Ministry of the Madhya Pradesh government. In this article, we look at the core functions and responsibilities of the JDA.
Regulation of development and Master Plan 2021
All development plans proposed by private developers, whether for institutional, commercial or residential purposes, must be approved by the JDA. Only when the Authority sanctions the plan, can such developers go ahead with the construction plan. Violation of such rules and construction despite the JDA’s warning, can even lead to the demolition of the unauthorised structure.
