The total area which is surrounded by a boundary line is known as the plot area. This is the total area of land. Simply, you cannot build any structure beyond the boundary line. Yes, that line or boundary included land is known as plot area.
What is Plinth area or Built up area?
The total land we used to construct the building is known as the plinth area or built-up area. It is also called the built-up area of the building. It includes all members of the building like column, wall, beam, etc. Its measurement is taken from the exterior part of the wall. It means the plinth area cover all thickness of wall as well as column.
So, plinth area = Floor area + area of wall
= Carpet area + circulation area + thickness of wall
What is Carpet area ?

This is a usable floor area where we can spread a carpet. So, the carpet area is about 10% to 20% less than the plinth area.
Carpet area = Built up area – Area of wall
What is Setback Area ?
The empty space around the building is known as the setback area. It means the gap area between your boundary line of land and building is called the setback area.
Setback area = Plot area – Built up area
