He announced to make a practical, simple and transparent law this year for the regularization of irregular building construction. Many citizens will be directly benefited by this and they will be able to make a living and employment with self-respect by regularizing the construction done by their hard work. He also announced to make necessary provisions for the regularization of business activities conducted in residential areas so that thousands of businessmen can conduct their business with confidence.

In his Republic Day speech, Chief Minister Shri Baghel announced to release the building construction up to 500 square meters without any human intervention in such areas outside the municipal corporation in the state, which are included in the investment area. He said that 'Direct Building Permit System' has been started in municipal corporations without human intervention in buildings up to 500 square meters.

He also announced to provide tap connections in a time-limit by making the process of obtaining tap connections in urban bodies free from human intervention on the lines of 'Direct Building Permission'.

The Chief Minister also announced freeholding of government leased lands in rural areas. He said that the government had decided to free hold the pattas located on abadi, nazul and slum in urban areas, thereby giving the citizens the right of land owner. Now it will be implemented in rural areas also.
 
The Chief Minister announced to reserve ten percent of the land for this category by amending the industrial policy to promote entrepreneurship among the other backward classes. This plot will be made available at the rate of ten percent of the land premium rate and one percent of the land rent.

In view of the success of Mukhyamantri Urban Slum Health Scheme, he announced to expand it to all the urban bodies of the state.

Baghel announced simplification of the process of making learning license for the convenience of the youth. For this, 'Transport Facilitation Centers' will be started on a large scale.
