Green Norms are likely to become mandatory for plot development. The plot owners will have to follow the Green norms while constructing homes in the acquired plots.
DELHI-NCR: As an amendment to the Master Plan 2021 is proposed, the plot owners will have to follow the Green Norms. However this will be applicable only for those who own plots above or up to the size of 3000 sq. m.
While constructing homes, these plot owners will have to make sure that their construction is done in accordance with the green norms. It means that they will have to construct eco-friendly homes, with special provisions and features that are nature-friendly.
It seems that DDA has made light of the plan to raise floor area ratio by 5%. The Authority also plans to impose penalty for violation of green norms.
No such provision is included in the current Master Plan. The suggestions for modifications were made during the advisory group meeting which was held a couple of weeks ago. The meeting has suggested that the developers will have to follow the modified norms.
The suggested modifications include waste water recycling, dual piping system, etc. The list contains rain water harvesting system and other provisions to preserve ground water.
It suggests that the recycled water can be used for watering the garden, cleaning the vehicles, and so on.
Besides ground water preservation, the body proposes many suggestions to save energy. Some sources have revealed that the authority plans to provide solar system for those buildings which have more than 300 sq. m. of roof area.
Though the revision of FAR is not in the proposal, in some exceptional cases it will be permitted. The FAR may be raised by 5%. The local bodies are planning to provide some incentives as well. However the incentives will be based on the Green Norms of Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment.
