Re: [adhikaar] balconies - area to be included in covered/super area
- hi vinay!
BPE ( Bureau of Public Enterprises) had issued (sometime in late 70s) guidelines and norms for the construction of residential as well as non-residential buildings by govt deptt , PSUs and autonomous bodies.The norms set by BPE were being followed till recent.Even MES,CPWD and most of the State PWDs used to refer the norms for new constructions.The private colonisers do follow the norms and bye-laws as stipulated by the local governing bodies viz Deptt of Town & Country planing, State govt. controlled Development Authoritie, Nagar Nigams ,Municipal corporation etc.
As such , there may be variation in norms as regarding computation of covered areas/carpet areas etc from location to location, since house/ property taxes are billed accordingly.
Trust the above may help you.

In buildings there are two different languages used -
Covered area and Carpet area.
Covered area is taken as the complete area including
balconies. Terrace is generally taken as 50% or at
times 75% also by some builders. For that matter some
of them even include the "chajjas" of windows. This
also includes the common area. All apartments have
this included as the builder always distributes the
charges for common area (namely stairs, lift and the
landing area) at each floor added to the floor area of
the flats on that floor.
Carpet area is the exact size of the rooms excluding
walls also. The floor area.
Generally in residential areas the ratio is 10% - 15%
and commercial 15% - 20%
The builder needs to specify all the above while
selling the property.
I dont think there is any law to it.
