Dear BIS,

Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and National Building Code (NBC) provides guidelines for regulating the building construction activities. The directives by Dist. Magistrate was due to recent incidents of fire in coaching center and to avoid such reoccurances. more  
Fire safety and corporation should be combined. Right now, department of fire safety isn't responsible for illegal constructions carried out fearlessly during past 4 decades, making Delhi and NCR Full of narrow lanes, making it impossible for personal from fire department use equipment like heavy vehicle like extinguisher to pass through
It's easy to blame the department of fire safety
Look within and look around to suggest solutions to the government.
Make sure that opposition doesn't exploit demolition of illegal structures. more  
Mr. Vikram Ahuja why don't you want to follow NBC. After Surat fire in coaching institute, all country is crying that all buildings should follow NBC and Govt is not taking any action against violators and when one DM is taking a right step you are raising a question. for the safety of all person present in a building at any time, following NBC is must more  
All commented but no one is sure whether NBC is binding on all constructions ?
What if there is diff or contra in NBC rules and local municipal rules, which prevails ? more  
In the interest of public and occupants safety it is essential to follow NBC standard as amended from time to time. Actually it has been noticed that most of the commercial places do not follow various safety regulation causing avoidable lose of precious lives, eg. recent case of Surat coaching centre.
NBC very nicely lays out various provisions and standards to be followed, in most of the cases if we follow those we can make efficient and better use of Public and Private facilities.

ADM NOIDA has taken a right step towards public safety. more
