Hi Friends,

From Last 2 Weeks, some progress has been made to my house construction, here are some updates.

1) Mud filling + PCC (using 40mm Jelly) has been put upto Plinth beam
2) Columns concreting upto 7 Feet is completed (Total 12 Columns)
3) Lapping is done above the 7 feet column
4) Wall construction is completed till 7 Feet using Red Clay wire bricks (9x4x3 Size) - Outer wall 9 inch is done, Internal walls will be done later.
5) For Windows the placements has been measured and gaps are left.
6) Ground floor Height is kept as 10 Feet

Materials using are Cement : Birla Super 53, Steel - JSW Neo, wire cut bricks

Some photos will be loaded

I am Little concern on entry from Road as 2 Feet height from Ground seems little high (Should have half feet less, else Ramp height for parking place will be higher, but can't reverse now. Need to work out on Ramp length for comfortable entry.

Hi Swamy,

I just dropped in to say that your post is very helpful for people like me who have absolutely no clue where to start when it comes to house construction. I've recently registered here and going through many threads which are very helpful.
Few questions:
1. Is yours an A khata site? If so, is there a different procedure one should follow when constructing a house(govt regulations and all,plan approval and other stuff is needed I believe)
2. Is there a regulation on how many floors we can construct and say if you want to build a house on pillars,leaving the ground floor for parking(and maybe a small room)
Sorry if my questions are stupid, I'm brand new to this. Any pointers on the work flow will be highly appreciated.
Regards

Hi Sharma,

It's A Khata Site issued by BDA, Now it's comes under BBMP. I don't think we need to follow the different procedure for constructing a house.
Normal procedure only, Submit the documents as specified for the Plan approvals (Ensure the Working plan should be at least 90% similar to approval plan). My Brother in Law knows the process and he helped me on this.

It's Bribe works majorly in BBMP Office, everything will be floated if you give money. But deviating too much on Setbacks will be problem to you as well your neighbours. At least keep 2 Feet gap across the site.

As per the Norms for 30x40 site the FAR should be 1.75 and you can construct G + 2 Floors.

For B Khata Site, there is no Plan approval process as per my understanding, some of my friends constructed house without any Plan approval process. They give some bribe to Inspection Officer when he visited and completed the construction.

Hi,

We used VI pipes, they are good in terms of quality and I have seen them using in many building & apartments.
Other brand is Universal Pipes a top brand which cost higher, the price would be 3/4" Pipe = Rs 52/- and 1" Pipe = Rs 72/-).

VI Pipes - 3/4 inch = Quantity 40 nos @ Rs 30 per pipe
VI Pipes - 1 inch = Quantity 15 nos @ Rs 40 per pipe

The other items you need are Fan boxes, Junction boxes, Collars, Bends, End caps, Tapes, Solvent, Axle Blade, Centering tape etc...

For Roof Slab overall Electrical Items cost comes below Rs.5000/- only,

Ensure you should have proper Electrical Layout from Architect before putting and check whether it is covered for Fans, Meter board placement, MCB board, CCTV connection, AC, Parking area Connection.
