`Government’s move to give 50% additional incentive FSI in Mumbai is a very welcome step for tenants'


The Government of Maharashtra last week has released a notification for a new policy for reconstruction or redevelopment of unsafe and dilapidated buildings. The notification says that builders redeveloping tenant-occupied properties in the suburbs and extended suburbs will receive 50% incentive floor space index( FSI). If required the FSI for rehabilitating existing tenants is 4, the developer will get an additional FSI of 2 for the free sale component.

Reacting to the same, please Mr.Rahul Shah, CEO, Sumer Group, said, “The government’s move to give 50% additional incentive FSI in Mumbai is a very welcome step for tenants. This will release more living space in a crunched city like Mumbai and will inspire developers to undertake more redevelopment projects so that the recent tragedy by way of building collapses are averted.’’
