Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has approved construction of buildings of 70 floors or more in five major cities of the state
The state government has decided to amend the Common GDCR (general development control regulations) to allow construction of high-rise structures of 70 or more floors in Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat, Rajkot and Gandhinagar
The plot size to construct a skyscraper having a height between 100 to 150 metres must be 2,500 sqm, and 3,500 sqm if the proposed height is above 150 metres.
According to Indian Express, Prakash Datta, Deputy Secretary and Officer on Special Duty in the department, said, “The main intent is to attract some iconic buildings in these cities. We are not incentivizing developers in any way. However, we are sure this move will help attract FDI in real-estate”
Also, another reason claimed by the officers is that urban land is getting scarce and that horizontal development of cities need more land, which is getting expensive by the day
