With the launch of new DCPR 2034, the confidence of Real Estate community has been reinstated. Key measures including opening up of land for affordable housing and unification of carpet-area definition are promising points that will prove to be a boon for home-buyers. The new DCPR has to offer something for all stakeholders’ right from the developers, to construction workers (skill development) and end-buyers, as stated by a report on DCPR 2034 by Knight Frank.
Some of the pivotal findings in the research report includes linking of permissible FSI to road width, resulting in decongestion of the roads, adaption the definition of carpet area as per RERA’s definition to reduce ambiguity amongst buyers, reduction of the minimum irrevocable consent required for redevelopment of cessed and Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) buildings, from 70% to 51%, to name a few.
Commenting on the report, Shishir Baijal, Chairman & Managing Director, Knight Frank India said, “With the release of DCPR 2034, the last level of uncertainty has ended. The developer community can now progress with confidence. The policy provides clarity and focus for future development of Mumbai. The development plan (DCPR 2034) is a crucial policy which can shape the future of our city; hence, it should be given paramount importance. The current DCPR 2034 has several positives and is a step in the right direction; however, we believe that there will be areas to work on further.
The DCPR 2034 has provided a fillip to the commercial sector in Mumbai by way of incentivised FSI, however, the high cost of the FSI could be a challenge. On the residential front, measures such as opening up of land for promoting affordable housing and unification of carpet area definition will prove to be a boon for home-buyers. All in all, the current DCPR 2034 has something to offer to all stakeholders and we are optimistic that it will have far-reaching implications on Mumbai’s growth over the next two decades.”
“NAREDCO as a body is delighted and expresses a bounty of gratitude to the designated officials for their sheer dedication towards developing a progressive DCPR 2034. This has opened new doors of opportunities for the developers with introduction of new impactful norms including increase in FSI for office development, creation for smart fin-tech cities, slum rehabilitation and adopting the RERA definition of carpet area which looks promising towards the growth of real estate sector. We are glad to honour the respected dignitaries under whose leadership and vision this DCPR 2034 has taken shape and India has climbed up on the ranking in EODB, thus further enhancing the prestige of Indian Real estate community”, said Mr. RajanBandelkar, President, NAREDCO West.
