FAR SCHEME

Notification of “Additional FAR scheme for widening of roads and improvement of junctions”

Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority of Guwahati is taking up road widening and junction improvement programmes in Guwahati city with peoples’ cooperation. Under Section 63(b) of Building Byelaws for Guwahati Metropolitan Area , 1998 the Authority may consider allowing additional FAR if any person relinquishes land for road widening or creation of open space, without asking for compensation. Hence the Authority framed the following guidelines for road widening and junction improvement programme for this purpose:

1. In addition to the “permissible F.A.R” to the total extent of the plot area an additional F.A.R (AFAR) of 100 shall be considered to the extent of the land affected in road widening and junction improvement and surrendered free of cost for constructing / reconstructing building as per land use of Master Plan. However the Authority will consider commercial use with 50 AFAR even if the Landuse is earmarked for Residential or other uses except Parks and Play Ground and Green Belt use as per Master Plan. The AFAR for commercial use can be utilized in any floor after obtaining permission of the Authority, who shall consider it keeping in view the developments existing on the road/junction , feasibility and smooth flow of traffic. “ Permissible FAR” is the FAR permissible in that particular plot irrespective of maximum FAR allowed as per Building Byelaws.

2. Wherever permissible FAR cannot be achieved on plots after road widening and junction improvement with the stipulated set backs as per Building Byelaws and Zoning Regulations the relaxation of set back and coverage can be considered by the Chief Executive Officer, Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority.

3. While exercising the above powers the G.M.D.A. shall finalise a suitable building line (i.e. front setback) for the complete portion of the road taken up for widening or junction taken up for improvement , keeping in view the developments existing on the road/junction , feasibility and smooth flow of traffic and notify the same for the benefit of owners of the sites affected in road widening /junction improvement. No construction shall be allowed in violation of such notified building line. While exercising the above powers the Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority shall ensure public interest and safety and smooth flow of traffic.

4. The relaxation powers referred are applicable to roads notified for widening / junctions notified for improvement under this scheme by the Authority and no isolated case on a particular road or junction will be considered for this relaxation.

Example :-

If the plot area is 500 sq. mts and the land affected in road widening is 100 sq. mts and the permissible FAR as per regulation is 150* the normal floor area permissible is 750 sq.mts. The additional floor area permissible is as follows:-     

Use Proposed for Additional FAR Additional Floor Area.
Residential 100 Sq. Mts
Commercial 50 Sq. Mts

5. The relaxed FAR will be issued in the form of a bond to the owners of the affected plot which has to be utilized in a period of five years from the date of issue of this bond.

6. In case of building constructed unauthorizedly beyond the permissible FAR proposal will be considered for regularization up to the additional FAR allowed as per this scheme.
