Gujarat frames regulations for Pvt townships in urban areas.

Gujarat government has framed regulations for integrated townships to be set up in urban areas to encourage large housing projects which can offer quality houses at competitive prices in the state, officials said on Monday.

The regulations will be announced shortly, officials in the urban development department said.

As per the regulations framed by the urban development department, private developers can build residential townships in the seven Municipal Corporation and urban development authorities’ areas like Ahmedabad City, Surat City, Rajkot City, Vadodara City, Bhavnagar City, Jamnagar City, Junagadh City.

The minimum prescribed area for setting up a township is 40 hectares where the developer will have to build necessary infrastructure like roads, drainage system, gardens and open space, water, schools, hospitals and shopping complexes within the township.

According to a senior official in the urban development department, in the integrated township projects, the developers will be allowed 70 meter height of the buildings, which means more than 20 storied buildings.

Moreover, the builders can also buy 0.5 per cent more FSI (floor space index) to raise the building up to 25 floors in the specified zones, the officials said.

The officials, elaborating on the infrastructure to be developed in the townships, said the developers will have to maintain a proper green cover with at least 200 tress per hectare and also quarters for servants and other weaker sections.

Asked how many proposals are pending before the department for setting up such large townships, a top official said, and “Three proposals by Adani group, Applewood group and Godrej group are pending before the department."

All the three projects will come up in 50 hectares area each, he said.

The developer will also have to maintain the township for first seven years and subsequently the management can be handed over to the residents' association, the official added.
