A week after the incident took place, civic body issued some 3,963 notices to commercial establishments in Ahmedabad for violation of fire safety norms.

 

The estate and town planning department of the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) swung into action soon after the gruesome fire accident in Surat that claimed the lives of 22 students.

 

A week after the incident took place, civic body issued some 3,963 notices to commercial establishments in Ahmedabad for violation of fire safety norms.

 

In fact, 434 of these notices have been issued only in the past two days, not just to coaching classes but also to schools, hospitals, restaurants and hotels.

 

On Friday, AMC officials razed several illegal encroachments including construction in the basement, or on terraces in some 26 buildings.

 

These included 10 schools, one coaching class, one hospital, seven hotels, six commercial complexes and one restaurant/ guesthouse. Illegal constructions totalling 4,940 square metres were found in these 26 buildings.

 

Apart from ensuring that commercial and public buildings obtain no-objection certificates from the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation for fire safety, civic authorities are also checking encroachments and illegal constructions in buildings that make premises vulnerable to fire.
