Yet another tower of the Chintels Paradiso Society in Gurugram has been declared unsafe
Yet another tower of the Chintels Paradiso Society in Gurugram has been declared unsafe for habitation by IIT Delhi, officials said.
This is the fifth tower in the residential complex in Sector 109 in Gurugram which was declared unsafe by IIT Delhi in the audit report it submitted to the district administration.
Hitesh Kumar Meena, Additional Deputy Commissioner, Gurugram, said IIT's report will be made public and an evacuation notice will also be issued soon.
Of the nine towers at the complex, the engineering institute has completed the structural audit for all but one, Mr Meena said, adding that the audit report for tower J is awaited, he said.
In its latest report, IIT Delhi said tower H of the residential complex, where around 11 families reside, is "unsafe for habitation", while the condition of towers B and C is deteriorating, but they are not unsafe as of now.
Of the four towers - D, E, F, and G - that were earlier declared unsafe, D, E and F have been vacated while evacuation notices will be issued for tower G soon, district authorities said.
Six floors of Tower D partially collapsed in February last year, leading to the death of two women residents.
"We will release IIT's audit report along with an order for immediate evacuation soon, as our committee set up to monitor the case is looking into the report," said ADC Meena.
"We have learnt that tower H has been declared unsafe but we have not yet been given a copy of the report," said Rakesh Hooda, president of RWA of Chintels Paradiso Society.
