Terminology used in Building bye laws

Whenever you see a town planning map or a blue print, you come across various terms like open space, amenity space. Here is details explanation in common man’s language for construction related building rules. 

FSI (Floor Space Index)

  1. In general language FSI means permissible built up area on any plot. It is calculated by dividing Built up area by Plot Area.
  2. FSI = built up area/Plot area.
  3. E.g. – If permissible FSI for a plot of 1000 Sqft. is 1.10, then we can construct 1100 Sqft. of built up area. (say 225 Sqft on 4 floors or 550SqFt on 2 floors)
  4. Ducts, Parking floor, basement, architectural treatment are not considered while calculating FSI.
  5. Depending upon planning authority by-laws, balcony, terrace, staircase, lift, lift machine room are deducted from FSI on payment of premium.

Open Space

  1. Open space is the space left for recreational activities for the user of that plot. It remains part of the same land under ownership of society.
  2. Generally we have to leave 10% of total plot area for any building or layout permission.
  3. Depending upon by-laws smaller plots, gunthewari plots, N.A. plots do not require open space area.

 Amenity space

  1. Generally for plot above 1 acre require 15% amenity space.
  2. Amenity space is a space to be left for government for planning various public amenities like school, hospital library, fire stations, police chowki etc.
  3. This space is to be handed over to govt. and owner gets FSI as compensation for land. (In short there is only loss of space but no loss of FSI)
  4. N.A. plots and smaller plots do not require amenity space.

 Paid FSI (Fungible FSI)

  1. It is additional FSI on any plot after payment of premium amount to planning authority.
  2. This premium amount depends upon ready reckoner rate of same land.

 TDR (Transferable development rights)

  1. Due to planning authority reservations FSI of one land cannot be utilized entirely on same plot. Hence Government allow plot holder to sell or transfer FSI of his plot. This is called Transferable Development Rights. Buying TDR is like buying virtual land.
  2. Buyer of TDR can do extra construction on his land.
  3. One cannot load more TDR than permissible on that land. Maximum Permissible TDR on any plot depends upon Access Road, Land Zone etc…

Road Widening

  1. Area of plot falling under proposed or existing road is called as road widening area.
  2. FSI of this area can be utilized on same plot or converted into TDR.

 Carpet area

  1. Before RERA Carpet area was considered as tile able area in property. It includes room floor area, Balcony area, terrace area, tile area at door jams etc…
  2. But After RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Act 2016) have modified carpet area concept a bit.
  3. According to RERA, carpet area include following things
  4. Room Area
  5. Internal wall area (wall between 2 rooms of same apartment)
  6. Dry balcony area (separately mentioned)
  7. Enclosed Balcony area (separately shown if any)
  8. Terrace area (separately mentioned) the only difference between RERA carpet & old carpet is that internal wall area is added in RERA carpet.

 Built up Area

  1. Built up area term is most commonly used term in constriction industry. & at same time it has various meaning at various situations. Hence it is necessary to clarify area included or excluded while discussing with built up area. eg –
  2. For government approvals it is the area covered by a building on all floors including cantilevered portion, mezzanine floors if any but excepting the areas excluded specifically from FSI.
  3. For buyer / user – It is usable construction area which includes parking, floor area, but excluding footing & foundation area.
  4. For contractor it is total construction area including parking, 50 % footing, water tank etc.., but excluding top terrace area.


Conveyance Deed

   Any construction consists of 2 most important factors first is b.up area & 2nd is land on which building is constructed. After completion of construction builder/developer was supposed to transfer land in name of society (or association of apartment).  This transfer process is called as conveyance deed. A survey shows that in almost 80% society this process was not completed.

You can check the more information about conveyance deed here https://foot2feet.com/construction-services/legal-services/conveyance-deed/



Building Control Line

It is the line up to which we can build construction according to planning authority / or any government authority.

Non Agriculture (NA)

  1. Any land (except land in Gaothan area) is by default agriculture land in India. It is assumed as non-agriculture land only and only after taking NA permission (Non Agricultural use permission) from collector.
  2. A copy of land conversion is called as NA order.
  3. For NA land zone plays important role. (Agriculture, industrial , residential)
  4. Depend upon zone NA can be done. Eg – Industrial NA, farmhouse NA, residential NA, commercial NA.
  5. NA and R-zone are commonly misunderstood.
  6. In simple words, NA is procedure to change tax on any land due to change in use of land.
  7. NA land not necessary to be residential land all time, and similarly residential land not necessarily to be NA land.
  8. A land which is in residential zone, but its use according to collector/revenue department is agriculture, then the land is not NA. (but this land can be converted into NA after completing NA procedure.)

Side Margin

Side margin is distance to be kept from plot boundary to building line as per Regulations. Calculate how much side margin you need to keep for your building.



Ready Reckoner Rate

Government rates of land, property is called as ready reckoner rate. These rates are published and regulated by the respective state government. Find Out Ready Reckoner Rates in Pune here – http://www.igrmaharashtra.gov.in/eASR/frmMap.aspx

R zone (residential)

It is a zone demarcated as residential area in development plan mostly it shown in yellow color any agriculture land cannot converted in residential zone it agriculture / vanikaran land must pass certain criteria for zone conversion. you can use our site feasibility service to know  whether your land can be converted or not.

You can check all Types of Land zone



Residential zones – R1 / R2

  1. Residential Zone R1 includes Residential plots abutting on roads below 9 m. in congested area and below 12 m. width in outside congested area
  2. Residential Zone R2 includes Residential plots abutting on road having existing or proposed width 9 m. and above in congested area and 12 m. and above in outside congested area

International Symbol Mark for wheel chair be installed in a lift, toilet, staircase, parking areas, etc., that have been provided for the differently abled.


Gunthewari Yojana


As you may already know, in Maharashtra state, gunthewari is a traditional method used to measure land. Eventually, the Gunthewari Regulation Act was enacted by the Maharashtra state government in August 2001. In the same vein, they were given the benefit of Gunthewari Yojana before 01 January 2001. Whereas,  on 7th January 2020, the Maharashtra cabinet gives approval for regularization lakhs of gunthewari constructions. To sum up, this decision of state government taken to regularize the gunthewari schemes in the state till 31st December 2021. 


Gunthewari for various types


You can do the gunthewari for various types. For instance, gunthewari can be done for the open land, building and flats.


Can I do Gunthewari now?


As of dated, 7th January 2021,  Gunthewari yet not started. Consequently,  Maharashtra cabinet gives approval for the same. And will start it sooner.


Charges for Gunthewari


The regularization of gunthewari development is subject to the prior  payment of compounding fee and development charges may be determined by the state government from time to time.. That is to say, the charges for gunthewari is yet not declared. 


List of Documents for  Required for Gunthewari


The following documents are required for Gunthewari  to submit along with the application as follows


  1. 7/12 Extract
  2. Mojani.
  3. Existing layout plan.
  4. Rectification plan
  5. An undertaking by the applicant to rectify compoundable infringements
  6. Building Plan as per site condition
  7. Other Land Ownership Documents
  8. Demand draft, drawn on any 


Process involved in Gunthewari


With help of license Engineer of liaisoning architect the concerned plot holder shall apply for regularization of gunthewari development . however, the file with all the necessary documents is to be submitted to the local planning authority. After that, the planning authority shall scrutinize the case for fulfillment of the stipulated requirements  and thereafter issue a certificate of regularization.


Benefits of Gunthewari development


Well, gunthewari developments are unlawful and there is an obvious need to curb such development, at the same time. Whereas, its not desirable to demolish on a mass scale of the old and long existing constructions  made on gunthewari plots. The followings are the benefits of regularizing the gunthewari yojana as follows-

  1. The prime and very important benefit of regularizing the gunthewari schemes is, whatever illegal you have bult I becomes legal
  2. It  increases the valuation of property.
  3. If you are regularizing the open plot then it also increases the FSI of the plot.
