All external work including electricity, water supply, roads, drains, sewage schools, hospitals, fire-stations, sub-stations, stadium/sports complex etc are counted in EDC.
Internal Development Charges (IDC) in Real Estate:
In real estate Investment these are the charges that are same as the EDC charges and are collected by the government.
