Sachin withdraws application for extra FSI for his house

Sachin withdraws application for extra FSI for his house

Sachin had wanted additional Floor Space Index (which is a ratio of the built-up area and the plot area) for building a home gymnasium.

"The proposal was recently withdrawn," an official from the UDD today said.

The architectural firm in charge of the construction had requested the UDD to allow the construction of a gymnasium using extra FSI on the top floor of the four-storey house, as available FSI had been exhausted. But UDD was not in favour of granting more FSI.

MNS chief Raj Thackeray had slammed the state government for denying extra FSI to Sachin.

However, the UDD sources said that construction had already consumed its full FSI and it also fell under CRZ rules 1967, so granting permission was not possible.
