Building line refers to the front line up to which the building can lawfully extend. it is also called as set- back or font building line. a minimum distance of this building line from the center line of the accompanying road is laid down as the limit beyond which no construction is allowed towards the road.
In case of a public building such as cinemas, a commercial concern, factories, which attract a large number of vehicles, should be set back at a further distance apart from the building line.
The line which accounts for this extra margin is known as the control line, generally, in the urban and industrial area, the distance of control line is taken as one and a half from the center of the roadway.
The limits of building and control lines are given in the table.
