Check the Land Area Ratio (FAR) for your property in Faridabad from the table below. If you have your plot size in yards, don’t forget to convert it to sq. m. by multiplying it by 0.836. The following table applies only to land in Gurgaon.

Calculating Floor Area Ratio – FAR in Gurgaon (As per local Building By Laws)
Step 1:
Area of Gurgaon

Permissible Ground

Real FAR

Purchasable FAR 
Total 

175  66  165  99  264 
76100  66  165  99  264 
101150  66  145  119  264 
151200  66  145  119  264 
201250  66  145  119  264 
251350  60  125  115  240 
351500  60  120  120  240 
501 and Above  60  100  140  240 
Step 2:
Let’s take an example of 200 sq. yd. plot in Gurgaon. Convert 200 sq. yd. to sq. m. by multiplying it by 0.836 and the result is 167 sq. m.
For a 167 sq. m. plot in Gurgaon, the Free/Real FAR is 145 and the Purchasable FAR is 119. Hence the Total FAR is 264.
FAR = (Total area of all floors * 100)/ Plot Area
For a 250 sq. meters plot in Delhi the FAR = 300 (as checked from the table).
Therefore, Total area of all floors = (FAR*Plot Area)/100
Total area of all floors for 200 sq.yd. (167sq. m.) in Gurgaon = (264*167)/100 = 441.46 sq.m.
Total area of all floors in sq. ft. = 4751.84 sq. ft.
Step 3:
If you plan to use all of your property’s FAR in Gurgaon, Haryana Building By Laws allows you to build a maximum of 4 floors. Therefore, the footprint per floor is 4751.84 / 4 = 1188 square feet.
Note: balconies, mold parking lots, basements, elevator shafts and smog are excluded from the FAR calculation, this list is not exhaustive and some areas may be added as the drawing is completed.
Practical application of FAR
The most practical way to define the concept of area ratio (FAR) is to give an example. FAR 100 means that as a homeowner, you can build a onestory building on your property or a twostory building in the center of your property. FAR 200 means you can build a twostory building on your property or a fourstory building on half of your property, and so on.
What are the benefits of setting AWAY for a city to its citizens?
Every city is like a structure and is therefore limited by the capacity it can withstand. Exceeding this capacity can cause various problems. FAR measures the resilience of a city to maintain the general welfare of its citizens based on many factors such as its ability to cope with natural disasters and others.
