Why not the MCH prescribe only FSI for all the areas and be very strict about the FSI. There is no need for any other bylaws other than roadside front setback. FSI will take care of all the other issues. Excess FSI built should by default become property of the corporation. The FSI should be amended taking in to consideration the present FSI pattern of development in each area specific.
