Challenges in Permit Approval

Government planners often face several challenges when it comes to processing permit applications:

  2. Delays and Bottlenecks: Manual processes can lead to delays and bottlenecks in permit approval, resulting in frustration for applicants and stakeholders. Ensuring compliance with regulations and zoning ordinances adds complexity to the permit approval process, requiring meticulous review and verification.
