    One more thing....constructing 1 meter wide balcony is just an extension of roof slab. No need for any support beam or pillars. Hence, no extra cost for the builder.

    Any thing beyond 1 meter would require extra bucks.

  • Good info. Thanks.
    While calculating carpet area, Do we include Balcony? I know it should be in for Built-up area but I don't think it comes under carpet area. Now we know at least 3.3 ft balcony is NOT considered as "floor" as per NA.

    Yes, a balcony with 3.3 feet projection is not counted as FSI.

    What I said is that a 3.3 feet projection of roof (which becomes a balcony) does not have any additional cost since no beam, column or pillar is required.

    Munish...........These days builders provide balcony in every bed room, living room and kitchen as well (service area). Only bathrooms are leftout.

    You want balconies in your bathrooms?
