PMC to promote eco-housing

Pune's development plan (DP) for the coming decade will have a futuristic approach with provisions for promoting eco-housing and extra floor space index (FSI) corridors, said Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) city engineer Prashant Waghmare. He was speaking at a seminar on 'Climate Change: Mitigation and Adaptation in respect of Development Plan and Development Control Rules', organised by the Association for Leadership, Education, Research and Training (ALERT) here.

Referring to the civic body's move to allow skyscrapers with a maximum height of 100 metres in the city in a month's time, Waghmare said: "The higher they go, more the space for implementing eco-housing concepts."

He said that it was time to get over the phobia against granting more FSI. "Many countries had successfully implemented this concept of allowing high rises thus creating space for eco-housing and this will go in our DP," Waghmare also said.PMC to promote eco-housing - Yahoo! India News


  1. Hi,

    We are a group of around 10 friends looking to buy a plot and construct homes for us in Pune. We were contemplating this when we hit the FSI 'bug' and now we are wondering whom should we approach for a solution. Where is it possible to get some information on the FSI limit in various areas of Pune? I am ideally looking for plots in Kalyani Nagar and surrounding locations, Kharadi, Hadapsar, Mundwa etc.



  2. Hello Arindam, 1. Thanks for commenting. 2. Congrats! Friends coming together and building a home is a great idea. 3. To find a plot you can give classified ads in Pune Times and Sakal. 4. I will suggest you to appoint/ consult a legal consultant and an architect to see the papers and utilize available FSI as per your requirements. 5. FSI depends upon the location of the plot so there is no point in making general statement. 6. I wish you all the best. Thanks once again.

  3. have a society plot for recontruction in bhavani peth . would like to know the FSI

  4. Hello DC! Thanks for reading my blog! Please talk to any architect. This is important for you. I myself never ask chemist to give me a medication even for a simple cold. Regards.

  5. Sir, I am planning to set up a Private hospital i would like to know if there is any additional FSI for hospitals in Pune.
