In Bangalore independent Houses like Ground plus 2 or Ground plus 3 (G + 2, G + 3) are built on plots approved by BDA ( Bangalore Development Authority ). These sites are usually are of measurement of 1200 sq. ft. They are also called 30×40 site. That is the standard size of the site in Bangalore More then 75% of the plots are of this size.

Cost per square feet ranges from Rs 1600 to Rs 1800 – depending upon various factors & material selection.

To simplify explanation, lets assume Your Contractor is Quoting you Rs 1600 per square feet of construction.

Construction Cost of Ground + 2 Houses in Bangalore

Here 1200 sq. ft. of construction is done at ground floor level & then next 2 levels. Hence total are constructed will be – (Ground)1200 + (1st floor)1200 + (2nd floor)1200 = 3600 sq. ft. of total construction

3600 sq. ft. x Rs 1600 = Rs 57.60 lakhs

Construction Cost of Ground + 3 Houses in Bangalore

Similarly, Here 1200 sq. ft. of construction is done at ground floor level & then next 3 levels. Hence total are constructed will be – (Ground)1200 + (1st floor)1200 + (2nd floor)1200 + (3rd floor)1200 = 4800 sq. ft. of total construction

4800 sq. ft. x Rs 1600 = Rs 78.80 lakhs

For every 1200 sq.ft. cost of construction is Rs 16.80 Lakhs

    Good Evening..

    Hi, my existing house is on site dimension of 1200 sq ft with carpet area of 575 sq ft each, ground and first floor with foundation construction.

    Now am planning to build a second floor raising pillars from ground to support the wall and extend the carpet area to approximately 900 sq ft.

    would request to guide me on approvals required and type on construction agreement with the builder if soft copy available.
