Plinth Area means the area of the building or the house including the thickness of the external walls. The measurement is taken between one end to the other end of the exterior wall.

The Plinth area concept comes in picture when you are typically building your Bungalow or you have a plot area on which you are building your home. Now, according to the rules, one has to leave certain area around the built up and thus,

The plot area minus the total built area from wall to wall becomes the plinth area. That is from the outer end of one exterior wall to the outer end of the other external wall.
