Ludhiana, July 19

Amid the rainy season, MC Commissioner Pardeep Kumar Sabharwal has written to the police to take action to get unsafe buildings vacated in the city. The MC had conducted a survey and found 142 unsafe buildings in the city.

According to MC officials, these buildings are mainly being used for either residential and commercial purposes while a number of such buildings are also disputed.

Sabharwal said the monsoon had arrived and there were chances of heavy rainfall as predicted by the Meteorological Department.

He said the ATPs concerned had earlier served notices to owners of the unsafe buildings, directing them to get the buildings vacated. But occupiers had not vacated the buildings within the given time.

Now, the MC Commissioner has written to the police to get the buildings vacated to avoid any tragedy. The Commissioner has also appealed to city residents that if they had any information about any unsafe building in their area (except 142 identified unsafe buildings), they could inform superintending engineers of the B&R branch, ATP, MTP or Joint Commissioner concerned so that timely steps could be taken to avert any mishap. — TNS
