One may also ask, how is FSI built up area calculated? It is calculated by dividing the total covered built-up area on all floors of a building by the area of the plot it stands on. For instance, if you have 1,000 square feet of land on which you want to build a residential or commercial building and the FSI in your locality is 1.5, then you could build up to 1,500 sq.
