The Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) is taking proactive measures to ensure public safety as the monsoon season approaches. The civic body has identified 125 buildings in the city that are in a state of disrepair and susceptible to damage from heavy rains and winds. Notices have been issued to the owners, urging them to promptly repair these structures to avoid potential mishaps.
Owners of the identified buildings have been directed by the PCMC to initiate the necessary repairs at the earliest. Failure to comply with the repair requirements will result in the civic body taking action, including demolishing the dilapidated structures and recovering the costs from the landowners.
The PCMC has extended these notices to owners of buildings located throughout the city as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of both the occupants and the surrounding areas. Owners are advised to conduct thorough inspections of their buildings with the assistance of qualified and certified engineers.
While the current count stands at 125 dilapidated structures, PCMC officials anticipate that this number may increase in the coming days. The survey to identify such buildings is still underway, and there is a possibility of discovering additional structures in precarious conditions.
By proactively addressing the issue of dilapidated structures, the PCMC aims to safeguard the well-being of residents and prevent any potential hazards during the monsoon season.
