BBMP to survey building conditions in Bengaluru

BBMP Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta has asked officials to re-conduct a survey of the dilapidated buildings and compile a report on their condition.

The frequent building collapses are now questioning the safety of other buildings in the city. In the last few decades, there have been many such incidents where people have lost their lives.

BBMP had surveyed dilapidated buildings in 2019. During the survey, 194 such buildings were recognised, and 77 building owners were given notice for demolition. But, since then, nothing happened, and the last two incidents in the past two days are just a pointer to a bigger issue.

According to the survey details, the maximum number of faulty buildings are in Yelahanka (67), followed by East (53), west (33), south (38) and Mahadevapura (3).

BBMP Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta told the media that he has directed his officials to return to the old survey details to take action. They have decided to re-survey the buildings which have been inspected earlier.

A team of officials will visit the buildings to verify if they are fit for residing. After authenticating the building conditions, they will ask the people to move out and issue notices to the owner to take the required steps. A team headed by joint commissioners will take up the survey at the zonal levels.

The BBMP chief commissioner held a virtual meeting on inspecting dilapidated buildings in BBMP limits. The meeting was attended by all the zonal special commissioners, the head of the engineering department, all divisional executive engineers, joint commissioners, all zonal chief engineers and others.
