Floor Area Ratio (FAR) calculation for residential plots in Delhi as per SDMC Building Bye Laws

Step 1: Check the Floor area ratio (FAR) for your plot in Delhi from the table below. If you have the plot size in sq. yards then make sure to convert it to sq. m by multiplying it by 0.83. The table shown below is only applicable for plots in Delhi.

Area of Delhi Plot (sq. meter) Max. Ground Coverage % FAR No. of Dwelling Units
Below 32 90* 350 3
32 to 50 90* 350 3
Above 50 to 100 90* 350 4
Above 100 to 250 75** 300** 4
Above 250 to 750 75 225 6
Above 750 to 1000 50 200 9
Above 1000 to 1500 50 200 9
Above 1500 to 2250 50 200 12
Above 2250 to 3000 50 200 15
Above 3000 to 3750 50 200 18
Above 3750 50 200 21

Step 2: To take an example, say, your plot size is 300 sq. yards. Convert 300 sq. yards to sq. meters by multiplying it by 0.83. After conversion 300 sq. yards comes out to be 250 sq. meters.

For a 250 sq. meters plot in Delhi the FAR = 300 (as checked from the table).

 

FAR = (Total area of all floors * 100)/ Plot Area
Therefore, Total area of all floors = (FAR*Plot Area)/100

Total area of all floors for 300 sq. yards = (300*300*9)/100 = 8100 sq. ft.
(Factor of 9 has been used to convert plot size from sq. yards to sq. ft.)

 

Step 3: If you are planning to consume the full FAR of your plot in Delhi then according to the Delhi Bye Laws you can only build 4 floors. Therefore the per floor coverage area comes out to be 8100/4 = 2025 sq. ft.

Note: Balconies, Stilt Parking, Basement, Lift Shaft & Mumty are excluded from Floor area ratio (FAR) calculations. This list is not exhaustive and certain areas may get added during finalisation of drawings

FAR or floor area ratio is the ratio of the gross floor area, that is the building’s total floor area, to the plot area, that is the piece of land, on which the building is constructed. Therefore, the formula can be written as: FAR = gross floor area/area of the plot.
