Unveiling a bonanza for thousands of property owners in Haryana, the BJP-JJP government has allowed ground coverage of 75 per cent for residential plots up 250 sq m (10 marlas). The current ground coverage was 66 per cent. This coupled with a maximum floor area ratio (FAR) of 165 per cent for plots up to 100 sq m and 145 per cent for plots between 100-250 sq m and other incentives are part of the amended Haryana Building Code 2017.
- A maximum of ground coverage of 75 per cent for plots up to 250 sq m.
- Allottees can have FAR of 300 per cent up to 250 sq m on payment basis.
- Ground coverage of 66 per cent for plots above 250 sq m.
- Allottees can have a maximum FAR of 264 per cent for plots above 250 sq m.
- Single-level basement allowed for all plot owners.
Now, FAR beyond 165 per cent (for up to 100 sq m) can go up to 300 per cent for which the allottees will have to pay extra money. While the permissible FAR for 100-250 sq m plots would be 145 per cent, it can go up to 300 per cent on payment basis, an order issued by Additional Chief Secretary, Town and Country Planning Department, said.
As against 60 per cent ground coverage, the coverage for plots measuring between 250-350 sq m will now be 66 per cent with FAR of 130 per cent. The maximum FAR in this category will be 264 per cent. Similarly, the ground coverage for 350-500 sq m plots will also be 66 per cent and FAR would be 120 per cent. The maximum FAR can be 264 per cent.
There is also huge relief for owners of large plots from 500 to 1,000 sq m (one and two kanals). They will now be able to avail ground coverage of 66 per cent as against the prevailing 60 per cent. The maximum allowed FAR allowed in this category will be 264 per cent on payment basis. In normal course, the FAR will be 100 per cent.
