As far as I know there are 3 things, CARPET AREA, BUILTUP AREA, SUPER BUILT UP AREA. No idea about TOTAL BUILTUP AREA.
So lets see what are these?

Carpet Area is the area enclosed within the walls, actual area to lay the carpet. This area does not include the thickness of the inner walls. It is the actual used area of an apartment.

Built up Area is the carpet area plus the thickness of outer walls and the balcony.

Super Built Up Area is the built up area plus proportionate area of common areas such as the lobby, lifts shaft, stairs, etc. Sometimes it may also include the common areas such, swimming pool, garden, clubhouse, etc.

Generally CARPET AREA is around (70 to 80)% of SUPER BUILT UP AREA. But note that this percentage varies from project to project and builder to builder.

Payment is made on "SUPER BUILT UP AREA".

Now the calculation : Lets take your example, if CARPET AREA is 600 sq ft. What would be SUPER BUILT UP AREA?
Lets assume the ratio is 75:25.
Means CARPET AREA is 75% of SUPER BUILT UP AREA.

SUPER BUILT UP AREA = 600 + 25% of 600 = 600 + 150 = 750 SQ FT

So the payment will be made on 750 sqft not 600 sq ft.

Hope this makes sense.

Pabitra Dash Sorry the calculation in other thread is not correct. The correct one is follows.

75% of (SUPER BUILT UP AREA) = 600 sq ft
SUPER BUILT UP AREA = (600 * 100) / 75 = 800 sq ft
So the payment would be made on 800 sq ft. NOT 600 sq ft.

Elavarasan Selvar... @Ani: what you got is 64% of the saleable area. It is quite low if it not a mulit-storey building. However, I would expect atleast 70% of the saleable area of your apartment, which is around 950 sq.ft... so to answer your question, yes the carpet area is low

Neelu There are two main reasons why it is absolutely important for buyers to understand areas and methods used to calculate saleable areas: (a) Different interpretations of areas and different methods used for calculation of saleable area can have more than 20% variation in total price tag and (b) Actual area that you get directly depends on how saleable area is calculated.

The example below will illustrate trick used by builders/developers, when they say you can find carpet area by applying loading factor on the saleable area.
Saleable Area: 1200 sq ft
Loading Factor: 25% (or 1.25)

Wrong Method (favours seller):
Carpet Area: 1200 x (100-25)% = 1200 x 75% = 900 sq ft
If you apply 1.25 or 25% loading, saleable area should be 900 sq ft + 900 x 25% = 1125 sq ft
As you can see under this method builder is charging you for 1200 - 1125 = 75 sq ft more

Right Method (favours buyer):
Find carpet area first by measuring actual dimensions, and then apply loading factor
Saleable area = 900 sq ft + 900 x 25% = 1125 sq ft

Summary
a) Bigger saleable area does not mean bigger carpet area
b) Lower rate does not mean good deal because it can result into higher effective rate because of loading factor, and the way terraces are charged (at 50% or 100% or at some other %), and if loading factor is applied on top of terraces
c) Method used by builder can cause a big swing in the total price as demonstrated in the example above
d) Lower loading % does not necessarily mean it is better deal, one needs to look into how it is applied on terraces, gardens and other areas that are not included in FSI
e) Per square foot rate is meaningless and misleading if not looked in light of the other factors that influence saleable area

koena kashyap @Pabitra, you have rightly explained the confusing area related terms of real estate. But, I would like to add the real estate regulator RERA has tweaked the definition of CARPET AREA, which is now explained as the net usable floor area of an apartment excluding the area covered by the external walls, areas under services shafts, exclusive balcony or verandah area and open terrace area, but includes the area covered by the internal partition walls of the apartment.

Also, as per RERA regulations, the builder is now obligated to offer sale price based on carpet area. Hence, as per the example explained wherein CARPET AREA is 600 sq ft, SUPER BUILT UP AREA= 750 sq ft
Post-RERA, payment will be made on 600 sqft and not 750 sq ft.

Avnish @koena, as you have explained here that as per RERA regulation, the builder is now obligated to offer sale price based on carpet area. I am also getting similar result while searching over internet but not able to see such lines clearly mentioned in RERA act 2016 PDF which I have downloaded. I have recently booked a flat and my builder has charged me on super build up area and not on carpet area. At the time of booking I was not aware of this fact. Now, from everywhere I am getting this fact but enable to get proper proof. As the builder is not going to accept any random post until and unless if I provide a copy taken from RERA authorized body or website.
So, my request you to provide me such link if ypu are 100% sure about this fact. It will be great help in saving my valuable and hard earned money. You can send me the link at "@."

amirah sharma Hi Ragothaman! The carpet area of an apartment is the usable area or the area on which we can spread a carpet. It is also considered as the net usable area of an apartment. Now if we add the area of the walls to the carpet area, the resultant is known as the built-up area. Further, if we add the proportional area of common facilities like lifts, lobby, staircase and corridor etc. to the built-up area, we will get the super built-up area of the apartment. Ideally, 70% of the super-built up area of an apartment is the carpet area. While buying an apartment, you should know that the builder can only charge you as per the carpet area of the apartment.

Dheeraj Carpet area- carpet area means the area where carpet in a room can be spread. Also, we can call it as the net usable area of a room.

Built up area- Built up area means the carpet area plus the thickness of walls. It includes the area of balcony as well.

Super built up area: Super built up area means the built up area plus the common areas of a property such as balcony, lift, stairs, garden, etc.

Difference between carpet area and built up area is that the built up area is generally 10-15% more of the carpet area of the said property.

ravinder sharma As per RERA, the builders can charge oon the basis of carpet area and not on the built-up area. Carpet area is the area covered that can be covered by a carpet and does not include the are of internal walls. Whereas the built-up are consists of the carpet area plus the thickness of walls and the area of the balcony.

ritu gandotra Carpet area means the actual usable area of an apartment on which one can lay a carpet. If we add the thickness of the inner walls and area occupied by balconies to carpet area, then we get the built-up area and further on, if add the proportionate area of common areas like lift lobby, staircase etc, then we get the super built-up area of an apartment. Before RERA came into effect, the builders used to charge on super built-up area, however, after RERA they are liable to charge the buyers only on carpet area.

Mohammed Yusuf What is carpet area, super built-up area and built-up area? A lot of buyers face issues when it comes to differentiating between these terms. Let's understand this one by one:

1] What is carpet and built-up area?
Meaning of carpet and built-up area- Carpet area means the area where you can spread carpet or can be covered by a carpet excluding the thickness of wall and pillars. It is the actual useable area which a buyer gets to use. Now, if we add the thickness of wall and area included in the carpet area, then we can calculate the built-up area.

The next question is how to calculate the carpet area from the built-up area? So, a carpet is 70% of the built-up area. For example, if the built-up area is 1000 sq. ft. then the carpet area would be around 1000*70/100= 700 sq. ft.

2] What is super built-up area?

Meaning of super built-up area is the total built-up area of your flat and common spaces such as lift, lobby, park and staircases.

The pricing of an apartment or flat is calculated basis the carpet area since when RERA has come into effect.

suchitra das What is built-up area is a commonly asked question by a lot of buyers. Built-up area of an apartment means thickness of walls and carpet area. Whereas the carpet area means the area which can be covered with the carpet or is to be used. Do you know how to calculate built-up area? It is easy. Built-up area is equal to carpet area plus areas covered by walls and as we know that carpet area is 70% of the built-up area so it clearly indicates that 30% of the area is not useable and is built-up area. For example, an apartment having 1500 sq. ft. area has 1050 sq. ft. useable or carpet area [1050X 70/100] and the remaining 450 sq. ft. is the built-up area.
