Recreational Open Spaces in UDCPR 2020

There are general regulations about any construction permissible on land and no piece of land shall be used as a site for the construction of a building if the site is not eligible for it.

 

If the Authority considers that the site is insanitary, incapable of being well-drained, or is dangerous to construct a building on it then it is not permissible to use this land as a site for construction.


For Example, if the site is in Defense land, Railway region Hilly region, or not drained properly in this case there one cannot construct anything on the land without considering the regulations. This information about reservations and their use is very important when someone starts actual planning, whether they are land owners, builders, or construction owners. It is a must-know information before purchasing land or starting construction on the land

 

UDCPR 2020 Chapter 3 is all about General Land Development Requirements.

 

This is Applicable to all Planning Authorities and Regional Plan Areas except Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, Other Planning Authorities/Special Planning Authorities/ Development Authorities within the limit of Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, MIDC, NAINA, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust, Hill Station Municipal Councils, Eco-sensitive/Eco-fragile region notified by MoEF & CC and Lonavala Municipal Council, in Maharashtra.

 

Rule No. 3.4 Recreational Open Spaces

Open space is the space left for recreational activities for the user of the plot. It remains part of the same land under the ownership of the society.

 

Generally, we have to leave 10% of the total plot are for any building or layout permission. Depending upon by-laws smaller plots, gunthewari plots, N.A., plots do not require an open-space area.

 

In any layout or subdivision or any development of land for any land use/zone admeasuring 0.4 ha. or more (after deducting area under D.P./R.P. road, D.P. Reservation including deemed reservation under these regulations, if any, from the total area under development), 10% of the area under layout shall be earmarked as recreational open space which shall, as far as possible, be provided in one place. In case of land admeasuring more than 0.8 ha, such recreational open space may be allowed to be earmarked at different locations in the same layout, provided that the size and other dimensions conform to the provisions herein below. However, the owner shall be at liberty to provide recreational open space of more than 10%.

 

i) The above-mentioned area of 0.4 ha., shall be measured with reference to the original holding as of 11th January 1967 and not with reference to sub-divided holding in revenue/city survey record thereafter without the permission under the Maharashtra Regional & Town Planning Act, 1966. However, this provision shall not be applicable to plots compulsorily got subdivided below 0.4 ha. Due to the D.P./ R.P. Roads/Road widening/reservations/deemed reservations or any other proposal of the Authority.

Terminology used in Building Byelaws

When ever 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. Eg. – If permissible FSI for a plot of 1000 sq.ft. is 1.10, then we can construct 1100 sq.ft. 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.

o

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.

o

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.

o

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…

o

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.

o

Carpet area

  1. Before RERA Carpet area was considered as tileable 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.

o

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.

o

Conveyance Deed

Conveyance deed is transfer of land in name of owner of constriction refer our conveyance deed page in redevelopment section for more detail 

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.)

o

Side Margin

Side margin is distance to be kept from plot boundary to building line.

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. (in our useful link page, you can find link for ready reckoner rates by Maharashtra government.

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 )

o

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

Must Know Factor of Your Land

Are planning to buy / sell any land ? 

Are  you looking to develop a land ? 

Are you looking for joint venture of you land with any builder ? 

Wait…

Here is what you must know about your land before you buy it.

  1. For any Investment in land for Buy , Sell, Develop or Joint venture legal rights, clear 7/12 extract (7-12 उतारा), title clear certificate, with no litigations or with undisputed rights to seller are must.
  2. There is also a common misconception for that clear ownership rights is all enough for any kind of development (eg-  residential, bungalow, commercial, industrial, institutional etc…) Title & search report clarify ownership rights of land but it does not clarify development uses of the land. So a wise decision in land deal is to consider various parameters of land development. Few of them are explained below

Zone of plot –

  1. Land zone is most important factor for any kind of use of land. Planning authority plans various zones in development Plan. These zones are like Residential (R zone), Commercial Zone, Industrial Zone, Agriculture Zone…
  2. One cannot develop the land for any other purpose except those decided by planning authority or government. (eg- residential building, industry etc…)
  3. Zone conversion is not easy to go process. Unless it matches certain parameters of access road, distance from Gotham, land area etc. zone cannot be converted.
  4. Most of cases zone change is permitted after payment of certain charges to government.

Access Road –

  1. Many times plot are purchased with 10 feet or 20 feet access road. It do not serve all development purpose of user.
  2. eg – commercial building must have min 12 M road. (In non congested area)
  3. On any highway or major roads, one cannot develop area without leaving certain distance from road.
  4. If access road is not of required width then planning authority do not allow such development.

Reservations –

  1. Reservation are not necessarily to be marked on site. So verification in development / regional plan & on site is recommended.
  2. Most of the natural reservations cannot be developed & no FSI / TDR as compensation is given to owner. These natural reservation include River blue Line, Area Under Nala, Hill Top & Hill slope, BDP (Bio Diversity Park), etc…
  3. For some reservations owner gets FSI / TDR (sometimes 2 times of land area) after handing over such land to authority. Eg – D.P Road, Garden, Metro station, Fire station etc…
  4. Some reservations can be developed by owner/ developer under certain restrictions.

Factors affecting planning and construction area –

  1. Various factors affect plot & permissible development on such plot. In such case desired construction area may or may not be achieved.
  2. These factors are like plot shape, plot sizes, land slope, Height limitations etc…
  3. Few other factors are like Electric lines, building control line, buffer zone, distance from railway line, airport vicinity zone, etc.. Plot in these cases can be developed after leaving certain distance from such factors.

Additional Regulation for Ratnagiri in UDCPR 2020

UDCPR has a Unified rule, which means that instead of having numerous regulations for every city/region in the state, it is better to have a single rule for all cities in Maharashtra.
