In Munnar there are tight controls on construction of commercial buildings and regulations on land use ,industrial activity and tourism development to preserve the fragile environment of the region. The Committee chaired by Mullakara Ratnakaran has urged the government to create a development authority for Munnar , demarcate environmental zones with separate building laws, and formulate an environmental management policy for the region. Till an authority is set up the report calls for a temporary ban on construction of all non-domestic buildings. The representatives of government departments and agencies,environmental and climate change institutions will constitute the authority that is about to be proposed. It recommends a ban on construction and operation of all commercial buildings beyond the permitted height and cancellation of title deeds and recovery of land for violation of lease conditions. To deny permission for construction of buildings that can pose a threat to the environment is stressed. To promote eco-friendly tourism and farming in Munnar steps have been called by the panel. There will be strict norms for pollution control and vehicular population, with deterrent fine for violation.
