What is a completion certificate and how to apply for it?

Author: Sachin Gupta | Find me on Twitter

In our last post, we discussed various approvals that are needed to construct a house. We also discussed that no matter if you are constructing your own house or buying it from the real estate developer; you still need to get approvals from relevant authorities within your city.

An important approval (or document) among all the approvals is completion certificate (CC). As the name suggests, this certificate is granted after the completion of the construction of your house or a group housing society. The certificate is issued when the property is ready to be moved in. A completion certificate is issued by the local development authority/Municipal Corporation certifying that:

  1. All necessary works have been completed according to the design plan and other directions, and
  2. The property is fit for moving in.
  3. The construction is carried out as per the building codes set up by the development authority.
  4. The building adheres to the earthquake guidelines, fire fighting guidelines, and do not breach any safety parameters.
  5. The interior work also has been completed as per the approved layout map. 
  6. The development authority has no role in the choice of interior fixtures such as bath fittings, electrical fittings. Fans, cooling systems, ventilation systems such as an exhaust fan, airconditioning, appliances, furniture, electronic items, kitchen fittings, are decided by the homeowner and the development authority has no role in that.

Therefore, it is your duty to apply for a completion certificate when the house you are constructing is ready to be moved in. Or you should ask your developer to get the completion certificate in case you are buying the property in a group housing society such as a high rise or low rise apartment complex.

Find below the procedure for obtaining the completion certificate:
