What is FSI  -  Floor Space Index and what are its significance interms of usage ..?

 
 Top Answer :
Rating : +4 

FSI means Floor Space Index, which is the ratio between the built up area allowed and plot area available. Like if FSI is 1 then on a plot of 100 sqmts, one can build 100 sqmts of built up area and with the setbacks and openspaces, the building can be higher than one floor.  Simply it means that higher the FSI, higher built up area is possible...or more simply one can say higher floors to go with....

Technically,what Anjali has answered defines the FSI. In my opinion,FSI tells more than that of construction. The FSI limits the population of the inhabited area taking in to account transports,parks and other amenities. The purpose is to have healthy environment rather than a large number of cement structures.
