Maharashtra Government will make compulsory the submission of building plan to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), based on carpet area (wall-to-wall area of the flat) only. The registration would also be done based on the carpet area.
As per the Maharashtra Ownership Flats (regulation of the promotion of construction, sale, management and transfer) Act (MOFA) 1963, it is compulsory for the builders to sell the flats on carpet area. However, since the government has not receive complaints about cheating, it is difficult to take action against the builders.
