The Punjab Cabinet, led by Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, on Saturday paved the way for easing of building rules to give a further boost to the construction industry while facilitating better urban planning and development in the state.

The cabinet stamped its approval on the Punjab Urban Planning and Development Rules-2018, providing for Purchasable Unlimited Floor Area Ratio (FAR) for Group Housing, Commercial, Public Office, Hotel and Industrial Buildings, while increasing Permissible FAR for residential plotted development and Educational buildings.

The new Rules were drafted after taking suggestions from co-departments and the general public on a draft uploaded in the public domain. Relevant suggestions received were considered and duly incorporated in these rules, which will replace the Punjab Urban Development Authority Building Rules 2013, according to an official spokesperson.
