The Haryana Government has increased the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) for residential plots in licenced colonies

Chandigarh Oct 4: The Haryana Government has increased the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) for residential plots in licenced colonies as well as for Change of Land Use (CLU) granted projects for residential use along with purchasable development rights under the Haryana Building Code, 2016.
While giving this information here today, a spokesman of Haryana Town and Country Planning Department said that the Haryana Building Code, 2016 provides that the additional FAR is allowed on the payment of charges as approved by the Government from time to time. Accordingly, the category-wise purchasable additional FAR would be as under:
Plot size/Category Maximum permissible Coverage for each floor FAR Zone potential/Rate of purchasable FAR (Rs per Square Metre)
Existing Additional Purchasable Total Hyper High-I High-II Medium Low-I Low-II
Upto 75 Sqm. 66 1.65 0.33 1.98 Nil Nil Nil Nil Nil Nil
76-100 Sqm. 66 1.65 0.33 1.98 1615 1295 970 810 650 485
101-150 Sqm. 66 1.45 0.53 1.98 2155 1725 1295 1080 865 650
151-200 Sqm. 66 1.45 0.53 1.98 2425 1885 1455 1240 970 755
201-250 Sqm. 66 1.45 0.53 1.98 2690 2155 1615 1345 1080 810
251-350 Sqm. 60 1.25 0.55 1.80 3770 3015 2260 1885 1510 1130
351-500 Sqm. 60 1.20 0.60 1.80 5380 4305 3230 2690 2155 1615
500 Sqm and above. 60 1.00 0.80 1.80 8070 6460 4845 4035 3230 2425
The spokesman said that in case, the difference in the size of plot from the standard size is more than ±20 per cent, the charges of the category in which the plot falls, as per actual size of the plot, would be applicable.
He said that it has also been clarified that the number of dwelling units allowed on residential plots would remain the same and there would be no increase in the same due to increase in FAR. Wherever, the building on a plot has already been constructed or under construction, in such cases, the owner would have the option to purchase additional FAR to the extent, it is required by him or her. In such cases, the Department would not insist on purchase of maximum allowed purchasable FAR, he added. However, in case of fresh sanction of plans and in cases where construction is being raised after demolishing the existing structure, the option of partial purchasable FAR would not be available.
He said that since, additional FAR is being permitted, the zoning plans or architectural controls in licenced colonies or HUDA colonies would be suitably amended. No further composition of zoning violation beyond the maximum permissible covered area and FAR would be allowed in case the allottee purchases additional FAR. However, in cases where additional FAR is not being purchased, the existing composition policy would continue. Further, in case of existing building on a plot where extra area has already been compounded as per policy, the same would be counted in the maximum permissible ground coverage and FAR being allowed as purchasable FAR. However, no cost would be charged for the already compounded area, he added.
He said that the purchasable Ground Coverage or FAR would be applicable for the licenced colonies and HUDA sectors. The entire revenue generated through the purchasable FAR would go to the concerned Municipal Authority for licenced colonies and to HUDA, wherever HUDA has to strengthen services due to increased density and would be used for consequent development works that may be necessitated.
