House design and Construction
Construction of house in earlier paddy field
Dear Mr. Thomas,
I am having 91 cents of paddy land which was given to me by my father through his VILL under Guruvayoor Municipality. Since many years there is no any cultivation. Half portion of the paddy land has been filled and big coconut trees, mango trees and bamboo are there. Half of the portion is not filled and laying un-cultivated. I am a retired Army person and presently living in Bangalore due to my children education.
Now I want to come to native and construct a house in the land given to me. But as per rules people are saying that permission will not be given to construct a house in paddy land.
Please advise me the action to be taken for construction of a house in the paddy land. I do not have any other land.
Looking for your valuable advise.
Do not simply go by what people say. You have to enquire with town planning section of Guruvayoor municipality by giving specific details about the plot like copy of your title deed ,survey No's and location sketch. If you need for us to depute some one to Guruvayoor to make enquiries, we will let you know charges applicable. If you can get services of a local Architect/Engineer with license for local administration, they will check up status and let you know how to proceed on the matter.
House design and construction by a Civil Engineer
I go through your blog and i felt its quite interesting. I have one query regarding the permission obtaining from panchayat ...am planning to build a 2100 sft house in my 12 cent plot and it is near to 2 meter width panchayat road. My doubt is can i get permission directly without any help of a civil engineer to build a house there from panchayat as my wife she can draw the diagram and do other things by herself (she is a civil engineer). Is there any new rule if build a house more than 2000 sft?
You need services of an Architect/Engineer who is well versed with Building rules to proceed on the matter. Just by passing B tech/diploma in civil Engineering from an educational institution do not make any one capable of designing the best house possible.
Even after designing Basic plan, you require detailed Architectural/Structural engineering drawings, information and guidance on latest technology adopted in the field/latest trends etc. Thus from beginning to end of house construction you need services of a well qualified and experienced professional. Probably engineering education of your wife may help her understand the professional in a better manner than a lay man and it may help in interacting with the experienced professional better.
I am not aware of any new restrictions for house construction above 2000 sft plinth area
