When you want to Construct your own house anywhere in Thiruvananthapuram / Trivandrum you will have to obtain Building Permit and Approved Plan and other drawings related to that building from concerned Local authority like Corporation/Municipality/Panchayath as the case may be as per provisions of Kerala building Rules,1998, subsequent amendments and related decisions/restrictions imposed  by the local authority concerned.Drawings prepared and Building Permit application will have to be signed and sealed by a Registered Building Designer / Architect / Engineer.

You will give here a few important provisions of Kerala Building Rules

1.You will have to leave minimum 3M on road facing sides of plot.

2.You will have to leave 1M and 1.2M on either sides of plot.

3.You will have to leave 1.5 M on rear side.

Building Permit is issued for three years and can be renewed after that period against specific request to that effect.

There are restrictions imposed by Coastal Restricted Zones Act of Central government on building near rivers and lakes.There are restrictions for construction near main roads and National Highways.There are specific Zones assigned by concerned local authority restricting certain type of construction in that zone.

There will also be frozen areas where construction is prevented by local authority.Due to these reasons,it is always better to get the plot checked by a professional familiar with these restrictions in the area concerned before you purchase land for construction.You can also directly cross check with concerned local authority on restrictions if any before purchase of land.

Building Permit Management System-

SANKETHAM - Online Building Permit Application
 Sanketham Software for granting  building permits by local governments in a transparent and standardized manner strictly following the Kerala Muncipality Building Rules and Kerala Panchayath Building Rules. Software developed by Information Kerala Mission (IKM) for local self Government Department of Government of Kerala. Delivers innovative and value – added solutions to the public/client, through the use of technology. The software – Sanketham – will facilitate e-filling of applications and hassle-free monitoring for applications.
The system is being developed to ensure transparency and speed up the procedure and will also work on first-come-first-serve basis. Only in case of rejection of a particular application due to various reasons, will the next applicant be considered.
Once the software gets functional, the websites of IKM, ISG and that of all local bodies will carry a link for filling applications. The applicant just needs to click on the link and till up the pre-loaded form. There will also be a set of cheeklists pertaining to the design and dimensions of the building on the webpage.
The applicant can fill each parameter based on the automated checklists. There will be options to fill in either the accurate measurements or in some cases to choose yes of no. The plan of the building can also be attached after the details have been furnished, though it is not mandatory.
If any of the dimensions chosen by the applicant while filling the application does not comply with the norms laid down by the government, a notification will immediately  pop-up so that he can revise the plan. The software will also display the standards and rules regarding building permits. This would make it easy for applicants to ensure accuracy while furnishing details.
Procedures associated with getting a building permit like document verification and site inspection will be carried out manually.

The biggest advantage is that the applicant can keep track of his file without going to the Corporation Office. Once the verification process is completed, the applicant can download the permit from the site.
