Industrial Building Regulations of FSI, Marginal Distances and Plot Area in UDCPR 2020

Mar 08, 2024

For the construction of any building, there is a restriction of floor space to be used. It is called as FSI (Floor space Index). Also, we have to provide distance from the plot boundary which is called as marginal distance or setbacks.


UDCPR 2020 Chapter 6 is all about Regulations for FSI & Marginal distance.


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. 6.4 Industrial Buildings


Minimum plot area, front, side, and rear margins, Permissible FSI, Additional FSI with payment of premium for industrial buildings in the industrial zone shall be as per Table No.6-H given below :-

Notes : -


(i)  In addition to the above, ancillary area FSI up to the extent of 80% of the proposed FSI in the development permission (including Basic FSI, and Premium FSI but excluding the area covered in Regulation No.6.8) shall be allowed with the payment of premium as specified in Regulation No.6.1.1.The notes mentioned below Table No.6-G of Regulation No.6.3, which are relevant in respect of industrial use, shall be applicable.


(ii)  In the case of Regional Plan areas, the plots fronting on National Highway, State Highway, and Major District Roads, the building line/control line shall be as per Ribbon Development Rules or as given in Table above, whichever is more.


(iii)  Maximum floor height shall be 4.5 m. for industrial buildings. However, greater heights may be permitted as per the requirement.


(iv) Buffer zone - For the construction of the industrial building, a 23.0 m. wide buffer zone shall be kept from residential or incompatible zones, wherever necessary. Such buffer zones may form part of a sizable required recreational open space. Roads and marginal distance may also be treated as a part of a Buffer Zone. However, the area of such buffer zone, falling within the plot, shall be counted in gross area for computation of FSI. Where a green belt is shown in the Development Plan between residential and industrial zones, the area of such green belt may be counted in gross area for calculation of FSI, if land under such green belt is owned by the applicant.

Provided that, if the land under the industrial zone is utilized entirely for non-polluting industries, IT/ITES, or like purposes, then such buffer zone/open space shall not be necessary.



Rule No. 6.6 Calculation Of Built-Up Area For The Purposes Of FSI


The outer periphery of the construction floor-wise (P-line), including everything but excluding ducts, voids, and items in Regulation No. 6.8, shall be calculated for the purpose of computation of FSI. The open balcony, double-height terraces, and cupboard shall also be included in the P-line of a respective floor, irrespective of its use/function. If part of the stilt, podium, or basement is proposed for habitation purposes or for the construction that is counted in FSI, then such construction shall also be measured in the P-line in that respective floor.
