A few days back, five people from Ulhasnagar's Mohini Palace building passed away after a slab collapsed in the building and following the incident, the residents have now asked the government to expedite the process of redevelopment by appointing a special committee.

The report states that over 400 buildings in the city have not been built with the superior quality material and are eventually in a week condition, and they have mostly been constructed between 1990 to 2000. Furthermore, appointing a committee at this crucial point will help in finding a solution for technical problems which will eventually help in stopping further incidents. 

Data reveals that the lives of more than 2,000 people in Ulhasnagar have been affected as over 50 buildings in the locality have either been sealed by the civic body or have collapsed, eventually leaving people homeless or forced to live on rent. Furthermore, 49 out of these 50 buildings have not been redeveloped.

A meeting was recently held with the officials from the civic body who released a list of dangerous buildings on Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation's (UMC) website. As per the list 23 out of the 148 buildings are said to be in the 'very dangerous' status, and residents from 19 such buildings have been vacated and the process for others from four buildings is underway.  Besides this, officials have also stated that structural audits have to be conducted for such buildings.
