Annual audit of buildings for livability
Hello I am Shivani from Mumbai. Today an old building in south mumbai fell and 10 people died and 50 injured.
I didnt know there was standards circle on local circle. Why cant there be mandatory audit requirements and certification by local munciipality. We are ready for this.
Does BIShave standard for what are the 10 things a building inspector should check?? more
WE need to have first person responsible for such collapses and that FPR must be punished . only that system can stop such accidents.
I understand that an IAS officer was transferred for objecting unauthorised occupencies in chennai. that has caused today's situation to chennai. Can any one find out the FPR for todays situation in chennai. more
Safety is the last priority in our system because it cost money and on the contrary human life is very cheap.That is why in India practically everyday you will hear one mishap or the other. more
A sensible suggestion Ms Shivani.
I personally would recommend putting down "quality control checks" during construction as priority, rather than afterwards.
What happened in Mumbai is only result of bad/faulty building material. It's there that the hammer needs to come down. THE BUILDER MUST BE TAKEN TO TASK IN CASES OF MISHAPS......... more
To an extent, the responsibility lies on occupants too. The signs of decay / deterioration can be generally observed by the residents. The collapse of a building happen suddenly but the decade takes long duration. The residents neglect attending to regular repairs / maintenance for various reasons. Government officials can not check each & every building due to limited resources. more
The life of a building is about 100 years. Any old building of more than 50 years starts decaying and it needs renovation. Please residing in such building have to be careful. more
