Brothers, I have read on this forum that these things are an important consideration while buying a plot but honestly I do not really know what do they mean and how can one tell if a plot is level with no depression and filling. Do you have to run soil tests in the lab or you can tell by simply visiting the plot?

    Depression plot is easy to spot. If it is below road level then it is easy to see. A couple of feet below street level is not a problem but if it is deeper than 3 feet them it is considered single basement depression. If even more deep then it is double basement. If deeper compared to double basement then it is a ditch not a plot (in my personal opinion). As for filling plot that cannot be seen by naked eye. You have to do a soil test! But it is not expensive. Do it just before bayana stage.

        @PK1: Thank you for your valuable input and expert opinion. Is it a game changer if you buy a plot that is leveled but it is land filled? Does it effect the construction cost or the re-sale value, a lot? Also how common it is for buyers to run the soil tests on plots to make sure that it does not have filling?. Regards .......

          Land filled plots are very costly wen it comes to construction. You will have to build a raft on the whole plot. Which will cost you as much as 1.5 lanter cost......

            @HT: So does that mean that a soil sample should be a MUST before giving a Bayana?

            (Also i have heard that Bahria, DHA etc they all have land filled plots since its impossible to not have fillings in such large projects and areas).

                But isn't it so that instead of having a raft on landfilling or depression plot, one can have pillars ( concrete columns) base reached to the hard soil, connect all the concrete columns through plinth beam and than start your normal construction.

                I had a depression plot and two engineers inculding map approving engineer advised the same.

                  Yes, bahria and dha are gurus in this, mostley their plots/land is filled which is dangerous as well as not everyone can built raft plus not every society can keep an eye like who is building what...



                  CDA is failed, but yes, in this regard, CDA is way much better than these private societies as it is CDA's rule that it does not ever fill a plot, jaisi kaisi hai zameen wohi hai,,, they sell that very part in market.
