Here’s good news for those planning to buy new flats. Henceforth, you will get to buy what you see, as it is now mandatory for developers to mention the carpet area or actual constructed area of each flat while submitting their project plan to the MCGM. According to a senior civic official, staff in their Building Proposal Department has been instructed to ensure that the carpet area of each flat in new residential buildings is declared. The builder has to sell the flat on the basis of the actual constructed area. Earlier, builders did not mention carpet areas of their flats in the project. Developers sold flats after mentioning the built-up area that included the staircase, lift, play grounds, parking lots and service area. As a result the buyer would get less space for real use. As per the Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, developers not only have to mention the carpet area of each house in the plan, but also have to sell it on the basis of this. It is learnt that the civic body has asked its officials to issue commencement certificates only after assuring the carpet area is mentioned in the plan. Bureau report – NMTV News.
