Which building can go into redevelopment?

If a building has an appropriate balance of floor space index (FSI) and has the potential to consume FSI in the proposed redevelopment on the existing plot according to the current Development Control and Promotion Regulations (DCPR) of 2034, then that building may opt for redevelopment. However, this is subject to the agreement of both the housing society and the owner.

How are the society and members protected?

Generally, Existing members are allocated their new flats below the developers sale flats hence when the project is registered with RERA the Existing members and sale flats are secured. ie:- (When a sale flat is located above an existing member’s flat, the existing member is also secured under RERA guidelines).

The developer will sign a Development Agreement with the society, which will include all necessary provisions to ensure the safety and security of both parties and their members.

Whose responsibility is it to take all the approvals?

All the necessary approvals will be taken care of by the developer, at no cost to the society. There is no need for the society to follow up with government departments.
