Over the recent past, the Council has built in-house capacity to undertake project management and consultancy services encompassing appraisal, monitoring, quality assurance and third party inspection of housing projects under the various Central/State Schemes. The Council is one of the Appraisal and Monitoring agencies for BSUP and IHSDP projects under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM).
The appraisal of DPR normally includes technical feasibility of the project, administrative and technical checklists, technical vetting of the design and estimates, relevant codal provisions, structural stability including hazard resistance and other related issues.
