"We will introduce TS bPass for building approval and the Telangana State Building Permissions and Self Certification system.
We will soon have a meeting with the representatives of Credai and state government officials.
The way TS iPAss has become a role model for the country, TS bPass will also become a role model," Raosaid.
He further said the government's aim was to ensure that people get building permissions in a time-bound manner and a corruption free environment.

On investments on infrastructure projects in the state, he said capital infusion in the sector should be continuous and be done tirelessly.
