The cessed buildings of class ‘c’ in Mumbai that are constructed after 1960 would soon get the FSI of 2.5%. Over 1,270 such buildings would get the advantage of the added FSI where the earlier limit was of 1.33%. Most of these buildings are deteriorated and are in the need of a complete makeover. The state government has decided to include these buildings in 33(7) scheme.
The state government shall make the necessary amendments in the MHADA act as well as in the development control rules. Earlier only class ‘A’ category buildings were entitled to have the advantage of 2.55% FSI.
