Jaipur civic body identifies 65 dilapidated buildings for demolition

The Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) in Walled City has identified around 65 dilapidated buildings that are unsafe to live in, but no action has been taken to demolish them.

The focus on dilapidated structures comes just one day after the wall of an old house near Jorawar Singh Gate collapsed. Even though no one was hurt, it could have resulted in a major accident. It took two hours for civil defence and police to clean up the area.

Because Walled City is a centuries-old neighbourhood, many of these structures must be demolished before they become a safety hazard to the public.

Arvind Methi, a councillor from Kishanpole, said, “There are many such dilapidated houses in the area, and I have repeatedly complained to the Municipal Corporation. Officers should actively participate in the demolishing of such structures. Although no one has been hurt so far, there is a chance that something will go wrong in the future.”

One house in Walled City collapsed last year. Even though the building was abandoned, a major disaster was avoided. The majority of these old structures can be found in the Hawamahal and Kishanpole areas.

They have identified around 30 such structures in the zone, according to JMC-Heritage Hawa Mahal zone deputy commissioner. The owners of all the houses have been given the notice to demolish their structures. They have also commissioned a survey from junior officers.
