As a relaxation measure in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, Delhi Development Authority decided to extend the time for payment of additional floor area ratio (FAR) and use conversion charges on reduced rates up to December 31, the officials said. 

The land-owning agency, during a meeting chaired by lieutenant-governor Anil Baijal, has approved a proposal to expand the ground coverage of warehouses in integrated freight complexes and wholesale markets from 30% to 40% and the floor area ratio (FAR) from 80% to 100%. This has been done as the demand for warehouses has increased as most people now prefer to do their shopping online in view of social distancing norms to contain the spread of Covid-19.FAR is the ratio of a building’s total floor area to the size of the piece of land, upon which it is constructed.

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) also proposed pliability in the land usage with higher FAR to encourage in-situ rehabilitation projects, officials said.

“The policy provides for the minimum residential component of land area for the rehabilitation of squatters to be 60 percent and maximum for remunerative use to be 40 percent,” the DDA stated. 

The Authority has approved a proposal for issuing a public notice concerning proposed amendments which provide that the scheme should be designed in a composite manner on the residential component of the land with a maximum FAR of 400. The maximum FAR of 300 on the remunerative component of the land shall be applicable irrespective of land use, officials said.
