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

 Thu Jan 24, 2013 Post  #2 vamsiJoin date: Oct 2010 Thanks guna for the clarifications. So, will explain what I understood with an example.plot size is 40x60 = 2400 sq.ftPlanned 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 misunderstandingVamsi M
 Thu Jan 24, 2013 Post  #3 GUNAJoin date: Feb 2012 Hi Vamsi,carpet area will not be exactly 24x23, you have to reduce internal wall area alsoother items are ok for understanding
