Mumbai: Maharashtra Government has cleared a proposal to amend the Development Control (DC) rules of Mumbai for redevelopment and reconstruction of old cessed buildings.

According to the amendments, tenants of old cessed buildings will get flats between 300 to 753.5 sq ft after the reconstruction or redevelopment, instead of the earlier the 225 sq ft. Non-resident occupants will get the same area as in the existing structure for non-residential purpose.

For the reconstruction and redevelopment of the cessed buildings, Floor Space Index (FSI) of 3 or rehabilitated area with incentive, whichever is more, will be granted.

Developers will be asked to create a corpus fund for maintenance and repair of the buildings for ten years, so that the tenants need not pay anything.

The amended provisions will be applicable to non-cessed buildings, constructed before September 30, 1969 if they occupy up to 25 per cent of the plot, where reconstruction and redevelopment of cessed buildings is being undertaken.

If old proposals of reconstruction of old cessed buildings are under construction and completed up to plinth level, government permission can be obtained for applying the new amendments to the old proposals.
