Recently the NMC has completed structural audits of a number of buildings. In their report, they have declared 173 buildings in Nagpur as unsafe and in a dilapidated state. As per the Times of India reports, the civic body has given notice to the concerned department to demolish around 97 buildings which are to be smashed within 15 days.
As per the notice issued by the NMC Chief Mr. Tukaram Mundhe on Wednesday has issued the notice asking to get rid of the illegal structure in the city and that fall the unsafe category. The buildings in the C-1 category would vacate soon so that the concerned team will dismantle the same. While the C2 Category buildings are supposed to be repaired to fall under the safer category. As per reports, there are around 34 such buildings falling into this category, which are supposed to be fixed.
