  1. What is FAR violations ? It is not explained anywhere.

    Another point to be considered is the period of construction. Regularisation of buildings constructed after 2000 should not be done, but action to be taken as per law to demolish partly OR wholly.

    As for as land is concerned, alternate allotments be made at the cost of the developer rather than regularising with a fee.

    Suitable action should be initiated on the officials responsible for permitting these deviations, as all the rules were formed during sixties, which was in force for more than half a century.
