JAIPUR: A two-storey house dropped at Kanwatiyon ki Peepli in Ramganj at Jaipur on Thursday night. Though nobody has been hurt, the incident has raised deep concerns on the job of Municipal Corporation, Jaipur, that neglected to check in the state of the dilapidated building for such a long time.
The construction collapsed over an electrical transformer. Roads were blocked from the debris until morning. Afterwards, cranes and possessions have been shipped by the civil defence to clean up the region.
A poll was conducted by the municipal company officers before monsoon to discover the homes that needed immediate fix. At the Walled City region, where homes are centuries older, approximately 60 notices were served on the owners. But following the notice has been served, no attention has been given concerning the implementation of the note.
As stated by the Municipal Corporation, Jaipur Heritage officials, they’d served a notice to the owner of the collapsed building.
Deputy commissioner of Hawa Mahal zone (East) Ramkishore Meena told TOI,”We’d awarded 19 notices prior to the monsoon period to owners of construction in dire condition. Owners were requested to destroy the construction since it’s inhabitable or to fix it according to standards. The proprietors of this construction in Ramganj that failed did not stick to the process, so today he’ll need to bear the expenses of cleanup the website.”
Under Department 243 of Rajasthan Municipality Act, 2009, municipal companies have broad powers to produce the owner to fix the construction and when they find it necessary, business can take down the construction themselves.
Moin Khan, a resident of the region, stated when the status of the construction was so bad the officials did not warn the proprietor. “Mere providing a note isn’t sufficient. I live two houses away and once we got to understand more about the building collapse, my loved ones and I instantly came from the home. Debris was all around the area and any passerby might have been hurt. Police should take the problem seriously or someone could shed their own life,” Khan said.
