FAR & Premium FAR - Comments


on the Notification dated November 17, 2020 on the Draft Karnataka Town and Country Planning Act regarding FAR and Premium FAR

  • It says objections received within specified period will be considered... There is no deadline for receiving objections

  • There is no criteria listed to qualify for the premium FAR.., no mention of whether this is a blanket premium FAR...

  • Usually you get premium FAR by paying a higher amount... here it is 50% less than normal value

  • Charges for premium FAR seems very low (Rs. 1650 per sq, ft) considering this is applicable in premium areas

There is no information on why this premium FAR is being introduced
