how to get a residential plot either direct or in the name of housing co operative society

Depends on the developer. Super built up area includes built up area as well as common spaces such as lobby, lifts, etc. Built up area includes carpet area plus thickness of walls and balcony. Carpet area is the actual area of living or space betwwen the walls.

Mutation is registration of name in the municipality or panchayat records regarding the right to deposit revenue for the said land. It does not prove ownership but can be used as an added proof along with registered sale/lease/gift deed to prove ownership over the property.
Mutation entries are only to enable the state to collect revenues from the persons in possession and enjoyment of the property; that right, title or interest in the property should be established dehors the entries; that the entries are only one of the modes of proof of the enjoyment of the property; and that mutation entries do not create any title or interest therein.
