AUDA to raise FSI in February.

Paving way for vertical residential development, the new development plan, likely to be announced by the Urban Development Authority of Ahmedabad, will raise the floor space index (FSI) by up to 30% in Ahmedabad.  The New development plan will cover 68 villages. The new plan is expected to permit the builders to develop sky-reaching  buildings.

The New development plan will raise FSI, R-2 zones, to 1.8 from the existing 1.2. However the planned alterations are believed to bring about coinciding alternations in the General Development Control Regulations (GDCR) as well. GDCR aims at bringing maximum transparency and standardization; meanwhile it ensures least flexibility in interpretation.

The New development plan will allocate clearly land for roads and infrastructure development, residential constructions, industrial areas and agricultural fields in the selected 68 villages in Ahmedabad.

Ahmedabad will see taller developments as AUDA raises FSI.

AUDA also has plans to change the existing 1.8 FSI to 2.5 FSI in R-1 zone.  This will be applicable for the buildings with over 70 m height (approx. 22 stories) in the R-1 zone. Adding to it, the builders are permitted to buy 0.45 FSI at a premium. At present they are permitted to construct buildings up to 40 m height (around 12 stories approximately).

The state government has plans to raise FSI along the 132 ft. Ring Road; besides their plan to raise FSI in BRTS and Metro rail corridors. However the proposed FSI will remain transferable. In short it means that the developer can have adjustments with the owner of adjacent plot.

The new development plan will certainly help the land owners in the city. Besides, the builders will be able to construct taller buildings. So, in short, we can expect a vertical development along with the horizontal development in Ahmedabad soon. Moreover it will help the builders develop more affordable homes as the construction cost will be lowered.
