Recently at a Security Event noticed NDMC Auditorium, at NDMC Head Quarter itself was not designed from SAFETY ANGLE was DEATH TRAP in Case of Fire or Explosion.
I went around the building because Toilets were located in back side which was closed and toilets at ground floor were flooded to had to pass through Narrow Stair Case to access first floor toilet which too was on the rear side – there was no Lift but Escalators directed in opposite direction which in case Power Cut would be Stalled. There were two Boundary Walls between Auditorium and outside. Food for Guests is served on the Second Floor.
NDMC Auditorium though approved & legal itself VIOLATED Building Code.
Fire Tragedy in Illegal Buildings is TOTALLY SCAMMED Administration.
First it was POLICE which allowed Illegal Activities at the Rooftop RESTO-BARS Structures serving Liquor & Tobacco without Permit – Which can’t go Undetected after Office Hours police is responsible for 24 Hour Security, Parking, Licensing of Bar & Restaurants.
Parking Alone is a BIG Issue 30-40 Illegal Structures at Kamala Mills may also Illegally use 1000 Car Parking Space, Creating Nuisance for Legal owners EVERY DAY fire or no fire. Police is also responsible for Illegal Street Food joints.
Second it was Fire Department which had not cared to SEAL BUILDINGS operating without fire safety compliance.
Third was MUMBAI MUNICIPALITY which didn’t carry out DEMOLITION OF ILLEGAL Building.
Fourth was GST & TAX Administration, Excise Department, Food Inspectors, Entertainment Tax etc which Compromised on Tax Collection for Space, Liquor, Food Served and DJ.
Fifth was Water, Electricity, Sewage and other services connected in Illegal building. I was in Mumbai helping an NRI shoot Music Video – All Unions & Agents came to collect BRIBES on Public Holiday 2000. All services were CHARGED without legal orders.
When it is reported 8% Eateries in Delhi are Observing Safety norm even 20 years after UPHAAR and 4812 Building in Mumbai served notices for Fire Safety norms it is TOTALLY SCAMMED Administration.
UNSAFE BUILDING COULD BE IN MILLIONS IN URBAN INDIA – OLD CITY AREAS HAVE 2 Ft Passages – Some Have Steep Steel or Wooden Stairs where only one Person can go up & Down at a time. Unauthorized Structure Have No SAFETY COMPLIANCE.
