Four-member panel formed to enforce fire safety norms for vulnerable buildings: Maharashtra to HC

Read Time:42 Second

The Maharashtra government informed the Bombay High Court Monday that it has issued a government resolution (GR) to set up a four-member committee. Led by former Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) commissioner Pravin Pardeshi, the committee will prepare a report with recommendations for implementation of draft regulations for fire safety in buildings vulnerable to man-made disasters.

The regulations were formulated in 2009 in the aftermath of the 26/11 terror attack, which took place in November 2008. The court directed the panel to submit its report with recommendations in two months.

A division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice Makarand S Karnik was hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by lawyer Abha Singh, seeking directions to the state government for the issuance of the final notification on ‘Special Regulations for Building Vulnerable to Manmade Disasters’.
