Ahead of monsoons, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has been conducting surveys of all the buildings in dangerous conditions across the city.

Moreover, a total of 485 buildings have been found to be in menacing conditions across the city of Mumbai. Among these dangerous buildings are 34 municipal structures, 27 governments’ and 424 private buildings. Out of these, 148 dangerous buildings have been demolished by the municipality. Meanwhile, the electricity and water connections of 112 buildings have been cut off.

In view of the situation, BMC Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal has ordered to take immediate action against the encroachments as per the rules of Emergency Management Act-2005 by reviewing the dangerous buildings in all the 24 administrative divisions of the civic body and the hill slopes in the BMC area.

Meanwhile, above-average rainfall in Maharashtra can be expected this year. The state had received good rainfall last year as well. Vidarbha, Marathwada, South Konkan and Western Maharashtra are expected to receive 35 to 55 per cent above average rainfall.

On the other hand, the civic body of Mumbai has been sealing societies and buildings with five or more COVID-19 cases since the outbreak of the second wave of coronavirus. In addition, the entry of visitors has been barred. Furthermore, residents, too, are not allowed to leave the premises. As per reports, in order to ensure there is no violation of the COVID-19 norms, which is likely to cause further spread of the virus, police are reportedly keeping guard at some of these societies.
