  • Far & Fsi

    The techinical meaning is the same for both FAR & FSI, which is used to calculate the Built-Up Area.

  • There is no difference between Floor Area Ratio (FAR) and FSI (Floor Space Index ). The meaning is same for both FAR and FSI which indicates the ratio of the total floor area of buildings on a certain location to the size of the land of that location. The formula for FAR = (Total covered area on all floors of all buildings on a certain plot)/(Area of the plot).
