Incentives framework for GRIHA and SVAGRIHA rated buildings in PCMC
Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation is the first municipal corporation to implement a green building initiative in India and take a significant step towards conserving natural resources and controlling the adverse impact of the development activities on the environment. By incentivizing stakeholders to adopt the national rating system- GRIHA, PCMC has promoted sustainable development focusing on human and environmental health, materials and resource selection, indoor environmental quality,etc. PCMC has become an inspiration for other Indian cities.
Sustainability Initiatives has guided the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) to develop a framework for the incentives to be offered to the developers and home-owners of GRIHA and SVA GRIHA rated buildings in the PCMC jurisdiction. Experts from SI have contributed through organizing stakeholder consultations and sharing expert advice for the incentives scheme and developed a incentive framework that is in best interest of all stakeholders. Along with technical guidance, SI also supports PCMC by organizing capacity building programmes for internal and external capacity building. SI also assists in creating promotional material for the widespread reach and implementation of the GRIHA rating system.
Promotion of the rating system and other capacity building activities are also being carried out by SI in collaboration with PCMC and the GRIHA secretariat.
More details of the incentives offered are available on the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation website (www.pcmcindia.gov.in)
