Topic: Difference between plot size area, built-up area, plinth area

Unable to understand the difference between plot size, built-up area, plinth area words in context of construction.
For instance, If we have 32 by 70 (249 sq yds) plot and planning for ground plus 2 floors. ground half portion is leave for parking and remaining half for 1BHK portion and remaining 2 floors, each floor 2 x 1BHK portions.
Assume 3ft from road open to sky.
Then how to come with plot size, built-up area,plinth area.

Regards

Hi Vasim


PLINTH AREA - It is the area upon which a structure rests.

CARPET AREA - is the area which we use i.e. usable area
SUPER BUILT UP AREA - it includes BUA (Built up area) plus passages, stairs etc. Here BUA is usable area plus thickness of inner & outer walls.

Thanks guna for the clarifications. So, will explain what I understood with an example.

plot size is 40x60 = 2400 sq.ft

Planned construction is Ground+2 floors, Each floor had two 1BHKs, each 25x24 (600 sq.ft) including outer walls (mean plinth area), carpet area 24x23 sq.ft each 

Floor slab is 30X48 =  1440 ( included stair area)

So, Super BUA will = 1440x3 = 4320 sq.ft ( G+2 )

Could please validate and correct if my misunderstanding

Hi Vamsi,

carpet area will not be exactly 24x23, you have to reduce internal wall area also
other items are ok for understanding
