Carpet area is the actual usable size of the flat/villa minus the thickness of the wall. This also includes the bathroom and kitchen. Any common areas outside the apartment like staircase, lift, security room, etc, are excluded from this calculation.
According to Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA), Carpet area means 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 exclusive open terrace area, but includes the area covered by the internal partition walls of the apartment.
Is carpet in the bathroom a good idea?
A: Homeowners and building contractors have long debated the pros and cons of carpet in the bath. It’s true that hard flooring such as ceramic or porcelain tile, natural stone, or vinyl is far better suited to humid environments. But fluffy flooring in the bath does have some advantages.
This of course begs the question “What is carpet area under Rera?”
RERA defines carpet area as net usable floor area of flat, excluding the area covered by the external walls but includes area covered by the internal walls.
What is carpet area under PMAY?

Does CIs cover bathroom or kitchen fittings?
Bathroom or kitchen fitting: This is classified as a finishing operation which would bring a construction project to completion and is therefore covered by CIS. Please note that this only applies where a contractor requests the work to be carried out.
Not open for further replies. My interpretation is that kitchen fitting and floor finishes are exempt from CIS if they are not part of a construction project. For example home owner wants their kitchen and floor replaced (not carpet) – contracts a kitchen company who then subcontracts the work out (No other work is being carried out).
I say yes, somebody else says no! I have a client who obtains work from B&Q for kitchen fitting. He then uses a labourer to assist. I always thought kitchen fitting fell under the CIS Scheme and told him he needs to register for the scheme and deduct CIS tax (unless of course the labourer had Gross status).
