Apply for Plot Purchase Loan

The Haryana government on Saturday decided to increase the floor area ratio (FAR) of individual residential plots in private colonies from 1.98 to 2.64.

The policy will help thousands of plot holders in private colonies, who had been seeking revision of the FAR norms, to allow them to make additional constructions on the same plot.

Officials of the department of town and country planning (DTCP), however, said that the plot owners will have to purchase the additional FAR, and the revenue generated through these purchases would be used to augment the infrastructure of private colonies.

FAR is the ratio of a building’s total floor area to the size of the plot upon which it is built. It decides the amount of construction that can be carried out on a plot and increase in this limit, allows increased construction.
