The area of an apartment or building that is actually used and in which a carpet can be laid. Carpet area + Area of the balcony + area of the walls are known as built-up area.

When buying an apartment or any residential property, the builder usually charges on a square feet basis. By knowing the break-up of the square feet, the price of the property can vary quite considerably. For ex. If the builder is quoting Rs. 2000 / sq ft of built up area.

Thanks a lot for nice and perfect answers I got.  But I have one doubt that if built up area is measured in sqft i.e. only flooring measurement in sqft, then how can we pay money for total construction done?

The area of an apartment or building, not inclusive of the area of the walls is known as carpet area. This is the area that is actually used and in which a carpet can be laid. When the area of the walls including the balcony is calculated along with the carpet area, it is known as built-up area. The built-up area along with the area under common spaces like lobby, lifts, stairs, garden and swimming pool is called super built-up area.
