What is carpet area, built-up area, and super built-up area?
Carpet Area: The area that can be covered by a carpet excluding the thickness of the inner wall. The carpet area is the area of the flat that you can use like stairs, living room, play area, etc. While buying a flat one needs to consider the carpet area as this is the part that you would be using.
Built-Up Area: The carpet area along with the walls make up the built-up area. The area includes the living space along with the walls and also the balcony. You need to be careful about the built-up area as the prices and size of the area can be quite misleading at times.
