When a developer submits his plan, the local authorities give their approval subject to a lot of no objection certificates, approvals, clearances that the developer is expected to get from various authorities around the project. These include clearances from fire department, water department, sewage department, electrical department among others. Till the developer does not get commencement certificate, he is not supposed to begin construction. If commencement certificate is not provided, project can go on hold and your money might get stucked.
