What is Carpet area, Built-up area & Super built-up area? -By Autoscale.

What is meant by carpet area, built-up area and super built-up area?

     Carpet area is the actual usable area of an apartment, office unit, showroom, etc minus wall thickness. Carpet area is the area enclosed within the walls, actual area to lay the carpet. This area does not include the thickness of the inner walls.

            Built-up area is the carpet area plus the thickness of outer walls and the balcony. Super built-up area is the built up area plus proportionate area of common areas such as the lobby, lifts shaft, stairs, etc.

The plinth area along with a share of all common areas proportionately divided amongst all unit owners makes up the super built-up area.


How can knowing the above terms help me in buying a flat?

This break up is extremely essential as builders can place anywhere from 60%-85% of the super built-up area as carpet area. That means, if the price is quoted as Rs. 1,000 per sq ft super built-up area, the carpet area could be anywhere from Rs. 1300 per sq ft to Rs. 1650 per sq ft. If this break up is not mentioned in the agreement, demand that the vendor/ builder mention it in the sale deed.
