The construction of flats in the city will get a lot of attention, as Mumbai gets the chance to show off its best construction methods and practices in a year.
The new construction guidelines, released by the city on Saturday, have been welcomed by developers as a big step forward in the fight against encroachment.
Here is how the city plans to take its fight against urban encroachment to a new level.
The rules set out the construction rules for residential and commercial buildings in the capital.
Construction rules for buildings of 100 sq ft or more (500 sqm) per floor are required to be laid on the first day of the month.
They need to be built on a foundation of fireproof cement, a minimum of three metres (10 ft) high, concrete or brick wall panels and steel reinforcement.
The minimum number of workers per unit of space must be 2 per 100 sqm.
Construction is restricted to residential buildings of up to five stories.
The building must be constructed without structural reinforcement or walls with openings wider than 2.5 metres (6 ft).
Construction of commercial buildings is restricted from 100 sqft to 500 sqm (25 to 50 sqm), with a maximum height of 1.5m (3 ft).
The minimum building height is 200 sqm, with maximum width of 2.75m (7 ft).
Minimum number of labourers per unit is 2 per 1000 sqm of building space.
Maximum height of the building is 200m (480 ft).
Buildings larger than this are subject to the building inspection rules, which require the building inspector to have a clearance certificate for every floor of the structure.
The maximum number of occupants per unit may not exceed 500 people.
For residential buildings, the maximum number is 50 people, but the maximum occupancy limit for residential units is 100 people.
The guidelines also say that a building must have fireproof construction.
“No person may build on the premises of a commercial entity with a fire hazard,” the guidelines state.
The construction guidelines state that it is mandatory for the contractor to carry out a fire inspection every two years.
“If there is any change in fire protection, the contractor shall be held responsible,” the document states.
Construction will be restricted to a maximum of five days a week for residential buildings and 10 days a day for commercial buildings.
“The minimum building length is 150m (460ft), but the minimum building width is 200 m (480ft),” the guidelines states.
In order to comply with the guidelines, all residential buildings in Mumbai must be built without fireproof walls, and the height of residential units in the building must not exceed 50 metres (160 ft).
A building with a minimum building thickness of 10 cm (4 in) or a maximum width above 3 metres (7 feet) is not allowed.
A maximum building height of 100 metres (330 ft) is allowed.
The document states that residential buildings must have a minimum occupancy limit of 100 people, with the maximum maximum occupancy allowed to be 300 people.
“Commercial entities must comply with a building occupancy limit per 100 people,” the documents states.
“All commercial buildings shall be built in accordance with the requirements of the relevant codes of codes and the relevant rules of the city,” the building inspectors order states.
The buildings with a construction period of one year or more are required for construction of commercial units.
“When the building period is one year, the minimum construction height is 300m (482ft), and the maximum building width above 4 metres (15 ft) shall be 200m,” the rules state.
“A building must always be equipped with fireproof fireproof doors, fireproof windows, fire proof doors and windows, and fireproof door frames,” the code states.
These buildings must be designed with a sprinkler system, a sprinklers system must be fitted to the minimum of 10% of the dwelling, and at least one sprinkler unit must be in the dwelling.
“It is required for the building to be equipped to prevent any breach in the structural frame, and there must be sprinklers installed to stop water loss from the building,” the Building and Building Inspection Regulations of the Bombay Municipal Corporation states.
There are no restrictions on how the building will be constructed.
It is required that there be sprinkler systems installed in all residential units.
The Building Inspection Regulation of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation specifies that sprinkler units should be installed in every dwelling.
The manual says that the building permit is issued to each residential unit in the City.
It also specifies that in the absence of a building permit, the builder is not required to build the building unless the owner is given permission.
It states that no person may construct a dwelling without sprinklers.
The regulations state that a minimum number (maximum) of occupants in a dwelling shall be 50 per 100 units.
In the absence the building permits, no building permit shall be issued for a residential unit without sprinkler, unless the building has a building inspection certificate.
The restrictions apply for all residential unit construction.
