FAR (Floor Area Ratio) In Delhi

Due to its less area and high population density, Delhi authorities follow FAR norms strictly that’s why it is important that all the construction is done adhering to all FAR norms and buidling bye laws of Delhi. FAR or floor area ratio simply means the ratio of floor area to the total land area. With different regions having different land quality, FAR norms are issued by local authorities of Delhi on the basis architectural guidelines for assuring buildings are constructed in safe manner and buildings aren’t prone to undue pressure and stress.

Plots in metro corridors and influence zones are allowed a higher Floor Area Ratio, however, the group housing projects face no FAR restrictions.

How FAR is calculated

FAR delhi

The formula to calculate the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of an area is:

FAR= (Total covered area of all floors of a building)/ (Total area of the plot)

thus if the plan is to build a four floor building in an area then the floor area ratio can be calculated like this:

(4 x Floor area)/Total area= Floor Area Ratio

and if there are three floors:

(3 x Floor area)/Total  area= Floor Area Ratio

The FAR of any building should be in permitted limit as provided by the authorities for safety reasons in cases like natural disaster or some other mis-happening, to reduce the damage as much as possible.
