FAR in Noida

The floor area ratio (FAR) denotes the maximum floor space that can be constructed on a given piece of land. In other words, it is a ratio between a building’s total constructed floor area and the land area.
In Real Estate, FAR is used as an analytical tool to project the impact of different types of land uses and to derive development intensity scenarios.
We at AEON Spaces are there to help you calculate the FAR, Built Up / Carpet Area & Super Built up for your plot.

Calculating Floor Area Ratio – FAR in Noida

(As per local Building By-Laws)

Step 1:

Check the floor area ratio (FAR) for your plot in Noida from the table below. If you have the plot size in sq. yards then make sure to convert it to sq. m by multiplying it by 0.83. The table shown below is only applicable for plots in Noida.

Area of Plot (sq. meter) Max. Ground Coverage % FAR
Below 50 75 180
Above 51 to 75 75 180
Above 201 to 300 75 180
Above 301 to 400 65 180
Above 401 to 500 60 180
Above 601 to 750 60 150
750 and Above 60 150

Step 2:

To take an example, say, your plot size is 300 sq. yards. Convert 300 sq. yards to sq. meters by multiplying it by 0.83. After conversion 300 sq. yards comes out to be 250 sq. meters.

For a 250 sq. meters plot in Noida the FAR = 180 (as checked from the table).

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 300 sq. yards = (300*180*9)/100 = 4860 sq. ft.

(Factor of 9 has been used to convert plot size from sq. yards to sq. ft.)

Step 3:

If you are planning to consume the full FAR of your plot in Noida then according to the Noida By Laws you can only build 3 floors. Therefore the per floor coverage area comes out to be 4860/3 = 1620 sq. ft.
