Is it Possible to construct a High Rise Building in case redevelopment of Society??If Yes,what is the height permissible as per rules??
DCPR 2034 which came into force in September 2018, had capped the building height and the FSI of the plots by linking it to the with of the fronting road. Narrower the road lesser is the vertical limit for development alongside it.
The fate of those who resided along 9 meters roads, the DCPR 2034 stipulated that buildings on 9 meters roads would be entitled to only 1.33 FSI in the island city as against 1.5 FSI as per DCR 1991 and those living in the suburbs would get 1 FSI as against 2 FSI earlier. The DCPR 2034 further stipulated that roads more than 9 meters in width but less than 12.2 Meters i.e (40 feet) will get 2 FSI in the island city as against the earlier 1.5 thereby keeping suburban limits unchanged.
According to the new policy even for the plots having frontage or access road of less than 9 meters this policy allows vertical allowance of 32 Meters in height i.e. (Building of around 10 to 12 storey tower) provided the access road is a public road or a street and it is at least 9 meters wide. The new policy so approved, has also lifted the curbs on additional FSI for such developments.
However, the BMC has clarified that high-rise developments will not be permitted if the fronting road access is less than 9 meters wide. For the plots that about 6 meters width and the approach segments are at least 3.6 meters wide, it has permitted buildings of 15 meters i.e. five storey up-to 32 meters i.e. ten storey in height. While relaxing the norm, BMC has imposed special conditions for fire safety for such developments. The experts are of the opinion that new policy will encourage redevelopment of smaller plots. It will especially benefit single building developments in the suburbs of Mumbai.
