If you approach the civic body asking for it to re-evaluate a preliminary or approved town planning scheme in which your plot has been included, the civic body will charge you Rs 70 lakh.

This eye-watering charge came into effect on August 1 after the municipal commissioner issued a circular recently, revising the decade old fee of Rs 40 lakh.

The revision comes at a time when the civic body is cash strapped.

In March 2012 the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) town planning department had set the 'varied fee' for a TP Scheme at Rs 40 lakh, mainly to deter objections, said AMC officials.

After the scheme is approved by the AMC, it is submitted to the state government.
