Rajasthan Govt lowers max height cap for buildings on small plots

Effectively these changes concentrated on reducing the maximum permissible limit of heights for new buildings to be built on small plots measuring up to 750 square metre.

The urban development and housing (UDH) department has made essential changes in building by-laws for the state on Tuesday.

Effectively these changes concentrated on reducing the maximum permissible limit of heights for new buildings to be built on small plots measuring up to 750 square metre.

“In this amendment, the government has reduced the maximum permissible limit of heights for buildings to be constructed on small plots measuring up to 750 square metre. However, limits for buildings to be constructed on lands measuring more than 750 square metre remained more or less unchanged,” said an official from the town planning department of the Jaipur Development Authority.

The government had also tried to make the maximum permissible limit uniform for plots measuring up to 90 square metre irrespective of the size of the road.

“In earlier provision the maximum permissible height limit for buildings coming up on plots measuring up to 90 square metre was 9 metre if the size of the adjacent road is 9 metre, 12 metre if the size of the adjacent road was 12 metre and 15 metre if the adjacent road is of 15 metre. However, in the new provision the same has been fixed at 10 metre irrespective of the size of the road,” the official added.

Officials stated that the objective to reduce the maximum permissible height limit for buildings coming up on these small plots measuring up to 750 square metre. is to ensure that the number of tenements are less, and residents don’t face any problems with drinking water and sewerage facilities of the building.

In addition, the government has cut down the provisions for mandatory number of trees to be planted inside the building post construction.

Now, it is mandatory for a builder to plant at least two trees for plots measuring up to 90 square metre and two more trees for every additional 80 square metre. Earlier, it was mandatory to plant two trees for every 80 square metre and two more trees for every additional 50 square metre.

“It means, if the plot is of 120 square metre, a builder needs to plant at least four trees. Barring which a fine of Rs 1,000 per tree would be attracted,” an official explained.
