    Will this Fungible FSI increase the overall FSI limit. (For suburs was 2 i.e. 1+1). It will become 2.35 or the overall limit will remain within 2?

  2. Ravindra says:

  5. Centaur says:

    Hi, As per the new article in ToI the net FSI would be 2.7 (i.e. 1.35 FSI + 1.35 TDR FSI)

  6. kalpana kamath says:

    We are in a 70 yr old building on the sea shore. Our building is taken up for redevelpment by the owner. Is the fungible FSI available for us in CRZ area? Pl. help by your reply.

  7. dimple says:

    clear f. fsi. mcgm  not exceed 35% f si. but reduice  free 10% free balcony  

  8. what does this sentence clearly mean ” A flat with carpet area(including fungible area ) of 400 sq.ft .

  9. N Old Society building was granted additional FSI in lieu of cash compensation for the plot area surrendered for road purpose.  It used part of it to building a small building and part remains as unutilized FSI. If that building is redeveloped, will the area of that additional building counted in the total built area?  If yes, will the gross area (area of existing building plus addl. compensatory area) be added to the plot area for arriving at the new FSI available?  If that is not done members of the buildings originally constructed will have to share the additional area with those in the new building.
