Narela and Najafgarh may be the site where Delhi will witness skyscrapers in the near future. For those staying in a gated colony with three storey can build more floors on the plot. The Master Plan of Delhi 2021 seeks to incentivize the redevelopment of existing plotted colonies in order to make more room to accommodate more people. Though only two floors were allowed to houses on smaller plots but, now, one can build up to four floors measuring around 15 metres.
AK Jain, former commissioner (planning), DDA said “Through a combined application, such group of plots can be converted into a group housing society. The owners can then build a residential complex with 12 floors and a height of maximum 36 metres. “One can build a taller residential building by pooling in land with your neighbors. Owners in contiguous plots can form a cluster of land that should not have an area of less than 3,000 sq metres. With a larger plot available, the Floor Area Ratio would be relaxed by an extra 50 per cent.
Anyone who is interested in a group housing scheme can submit their proposal to the engineering wing of the MCD, which will then forward it to the MCD House for approval. Once the House approves it, construction will be allowed. An MCD official said “Most people are not aware of the existence of such a clause in which plots can be joined and 12-storey houses can be built for residential purpose much like residential societies.
“By joining smaller plots and turning the land into one big plot, the residents can build recreational facilities such as children’s play area, but so far, no one has showed any initiative,“ was said by Subhash Arya, Leader of House in MCD. He also said that if the MCD receive such proposal, they would surely consider it and in fact, MCD would encourage more people to come forward with similar proposals. TOMORROW With large availability of housing in Delhi when it goes vertical, will realty prices in Gurgaon and Noida get affected.
