The chief minister,Mr.Chauhan,on friday cleared the proposal to hike FSI (floor space index) of Koliwadas of Mumbai to 2 from 1.This is on similar lines to the FSI in Gaothan areas.However,unlike Gaothan areas,Koliwadas have not been mapped and hence a mapping drive will also be undertaken.The Survey will be carried out over a period of 3 months.Following which a clear demarcation of Koliwadas will be available with the Govt.This will be applicable to Koliwadas within the city limits initially.
With an FSI of 2,the gross area of the constructed building will be twice the area of the plot it stands on.

At the most the new regulations will help regularise the violations,felt most people.
