Haryana Revises Construction Norms, Allows Housing Colonies On Smaller Plots

The Haryana government, in order to increase the supply and¬†stablise¬†property prices in the¬†state, on June 25, 2019¬†had revised the building norms to allow¬†the¬†construction of housing and commercial projects on smaller land parcels. The norms have been revised based on the zone a project falls under¬†‚ÄĒ hyper, high, medium or low,¬†based on the circle rates and the market price of land in a particular area. This move is also aimed at keeping a check on¬†the¬†unauthorised¬†construction and mushrooming of illegal colonies.¬†¬†

Revised norms and minimum area required 

CategorisationResidential Plotted Colony (in acre) Residential Group Housing (in acre) Industrial Plotted Colony (in acre) Deen Dayal Jan Awas Yojana (in acre)
Medium 152155

The state‚Äôs affordable housing policy,¬†Deen¬†Dayal¬†Jan¬†Awas¬†Yojana, is expected to benefit the most from the revised norms. ‚ÄúThere are a lot of smaller land parcels that can now be developed without any hindrance. The extension of¬†the¬†DDJAY scheme to¬†Gurugram¬†would mean more affordable housing,‚ÄĚ district town planner RS¬†Bhath¬†was reported as saying in a¬†Hindustan Times¬†report.¬†¬†

However, the challenge of well-developed infrastructure, including roads, sewage, electricity and water, would still remain. These will have to be provided in an efficient and planned manner to ensure these units are saleable. Market experts have applauded this decision as it would cost the developers lesser to develop smaller projects. It will also be less time consuming and fast selling.

According to media reports, the revised norms will be placed in the public domain for 30 days for inviting objections and suggestions from stakeholders and general public. This feedback will be taken into account at the time of finalising the policy.
