      The Town & Country Planning Unit was established in Puducherry during November 1965  under the Directorate of Public Works for drawing up Development Plans initially for Puducherry and Karaikal and subsequently for Mahe and Yanam. Since enormous developments had come within as well as outside the urban areas of the Union Territory and in order to control the spatial developments, a separate organization in the name of Town and Country Planning Unit started functioning independently during 1966 headed by the Senior Town Planner.

Subsequently, the Sub-Offices were set up in  Karaikal, Mahe and Yanam in March 1974, November 1979  and June  1983 respectively. 

 

        The Puducherry Town and Country Planning Act was enacted on 20.5.1970.

        The Puducherry Building Bye-Laws and Zoning Regulations formulated on 9.9.1972 was revised and "The Puducherry Building Bye-Laws and Zoning Regulations, 2012" notified on 5.3.2012.

        The Puducherry Town and Country Planning Rules was enacted on 18.4.1974 .

The Town and Country Planning Department is responsible for planned growth of urban and rural areas in the Union Territory of Puducherry through preparation and enforcement of Development Plans. It has a mission to provide hygienic & conducive living environment and optimum & rational use of precious and scarce land resources by way of sustainable development
