Default CMDA setback requirements

Hi freinds,

I intend to construct an apartment syle building on a plot of 40x60 ft on a 40 ft road within CMDA limits. As per rules book, for a special building, a minimum of 3.5 m setback is required on front and 4 m on the rear. That knocks off about 25 ft from 60 ft depth. Assuming a total of 36 ft as building height, the side setback would total 24 feet. That would leave paltry 16x35 ft or 560 sft for constructing the building. I could not imagine building 3600 sft on this land nor I see any building anywhere in Chennai constructed like that. Is my interpretation correct? How is setbacks applied on a comparable plot?

FSR (Floor Space Ratio) plays an important role allowed FSR is 60% to 70% only 30% has to be open space. FSR is calculated as the 12 Noon Shadow.
FSI, FSR, Height of the building are the main aspects of approval. Apart from this there are many rules for approval, but all the rules are broken out giving bribe.
