After the revised 2016 Haryana Building By Laws, additional FAR was allowed on plots upon payment of charges as approved by the government. This Purchasable FAR was again increased in September, 2019. Before we explain the FAR Increase in Gurgaon, let us first understand what is FAR.

What is FAR?

FAR is the floor area ratio between the floor area and the plot area, meaning how much you can build on your plot in terms of area considering your plot area and size. The quotient is obtained by total covered area (plinth area) on all floors multiplied by 100, divided by the area of the plot.

FAR = Total covered area of all floors x 100/ Plot area

New Increased FAR in Gurugram, Haryana

To understand the calculations as per new FAR, let us take an example of a 200 sq. yards plot. The total FAR is a sum of Max Free FAR+Max Purchasable FAR.

Convert 200 sq. yd. to sq. m. by multiplying it by 0.836 and the result is 167 sq. m.

For a 167 sq. m. plot in Gurgaon, the Free/Real FAR is 145 and the Purchasable FAR is 119. Hence the New Total FAR is 264.

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 200 sq.yd. (167sq. m.) in Gurgaon = (264*167)/100 = 441.46 sq.m.

Total area of all floors in sq. ft. = 4751.84 sq. ft.

If you are planning to consume the full FAR of your plot in Gurgaon then according to the Gurgaon By Laws, you can build a maximum of 4 floors. Therefore the per floor coverage area comes out to be 4751.84/4 = 1188 sq. ft.
