At Saakaar Developers, we recognize that embarking on your dream building project is a monumental endeavor. Whether it’s the creation of a residential sanctuary or a commercial masterpiece, the cornerstone of your project’s success lies in the meticulous choice of land. This pivotal decision serves as the bedrock for the triumph and longevity of your construction venture. In this blog post, we’ll leverage our extensive experience in building design, construction processes, and all facets of building and road construction to impart our expertise on making the perfect land selection for your project.
1. Size and Orientation: Laying the Groundwork
When it comes to land selection, getting the size and orientation right is paramount. We advocate for our clients to consider a plot size that allows for optimal planning, with a minimum recommendation of 4 annas of land. Additionally, we emphasize the importance of paying attention to the land’s orientation, as it can significantly impact natural light, ventilation, and overall aesthetics.
2. The Shape of Your Dreams: Land Geometry’s Influence
The shape of your land can wield substantial influence over your construction plans. While square or rectangular plots are ideal for efficient space utilization, irregular or triangular plots with limited width may pose challenges. Before committing, it’s imperative to meticulously assess whether the land’s shape aligns with your architectural vision.
3. Road Connectivity: The Arteries of Your Project
Road connectivity stands as a lifeline in land selection. It’s essential to ensure that the chosen land is accessible through well-maintained roads with a minimum width of 6 meters. In instances involving dead-end roads, a minimum width of four meters is advisable. When the existing road width falls short, readiness to collaborate with neighbors to upgrade it to standard is key.
4. Navigating Land Slope Considerations
Land situated on a steep slope can lead to escalated construction costs and complications. We strongly advise against purchasing land with a slope greater than 15 degrees. Opting for land at least 100 meters away from steep slopes or lower-lying areas is recommended to circumvent potential difficulties.
5. Ground with Potential: Land with Soil Filling
Land filled with soil demands special attention. Allowing time for the soil to settle and incorporating load impact practices, such as stacking bricks, for a minimum of six months before construction ensures a stable foundation for your project.
6. Staying River-Smart: Distance from Water Bodies
While proximity to rivers may appear idyllic, it can pose risks during heavy rains. We advocate for purchasing land at least 100 meters away from riverbanks, adhering to setback regulations ranging from 10 to 30 meters based on the river’s size.
7. High Tension Lines: Keeping a Safe Distance
Maintaining an appropriate distance from high tension power lines is of paramount importance. Compliance with government regulations, which mandate setbacks of 1.5 meters for 11 kV lines, 3 meters for 11-22 kV lines, and at least 15 meters for lines of 33 kV or higher, is crucial.
8. Road Surroundings: Acknowledging the Significance of Setbacks
For lands surrounded by roads on three or four sides, a 1.5-meter setback is essential to forestall future complications related to road connectivity.
9. Historical Insights: Unearthing the Land’s Past
Understanding the historical context of the land is critical. It’s imperative to ascertain that the land is not guthi land or owned by a trust. Engaging with neighbors to collect comprehensive information and forge connections is a prudent step.
10. Verify Details: Blueprint and Ownership Certificate
Cross-verification of the land’s details against the blueprint and land ownership certificate (lal purja) is indispensable to ensure accuracy, thereby facilitating future negotiations.
11. Future-Proof Your Investment: Paving the Path to Sustainability
