Noida will change building bylaws to beef up fire safetyNOIDA: To ensure fast and easy evacuations in high-rises in case of a fire, authorities in Gautam Budh Nagar district will soon propose changes for the building bylaws.

A committee of experts and civic officials has been formed for suggesting the new fire safety measures within a month. The move follows a meeting between Rama Raman, Uttar Pradesh principal secretary, Industries and Noida Authority chairperson, chief executive officers of the three authorities (Noida, Greater Noida and YEIDA) and chief fire officer of the district in Lucknow on Friday.

“Presently we follow the National Building Code for implementation of fire safety measures in buildings. The plan is to strengthen the fire safety norms. Besides proposing stricter norms, we want to ensure safety of occupants in high-rises and protect property from fire,” Deepak Agarwal, CEO, Noida and Greater Noida Authority told TOI from Lucknow

Agarwal further informed that a committee comprising of fire experts from UP and Delhi, besides senior officials from the three authorities will study the proposal and submit a report. “A list of changes to our existing building bylaws for fire safety will be drawn up and a report will be submitted by the committee within a month. After that, the proposal will be examined in detail and it will be forwarded to the boards of the three authorities. Once approved by the boards, the proposal will be forwarded to the state government for final approval before implementation,” he explained.

The amendments would primarily aim to prevent fires, ensuring that necessary training and equipment is on hand, and that the original design basis of the building, including the basic plan set out by the architect, is not compromised. “Sanctioned layout building plans will have to adhere to the norms in respect to escape routes, setbacks, elevator standards. These norms will be implemented and enforced in public buildings including schools, colleges, hospitals, institutional buildings and residential buildings,” he added.

Relief to builders in Gurgaon & Faridabad as fire dept issues provisional NOCs for flats

The issue was part of the 20-point memorandum submitted by the NAREDCO team headed by its president Parveen Jain.

Relief to builders in Gurgaon and Faridabad as fire dept issues provisional NOCs for flatsCHANDIGARH: In a first-ever major relief to builders, the Haryana government on Monday announced the issuance of provisional noobjection certificates (NOCs) by the fire department with regard to construction of 15,000 flats in Gurugram and Faridabad districts.

Haryana department of urban local bodies officers said a meeting was organized with members of the executive committee of the National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO), an apex national body for real estate industry under the ministry of housing and urban poverty alleviation, at CM Manohar Lal Khattar’s residence.

The issue was part of the 20-point memorandum submitted by the NAREDCO team headed by its president Parveen Jain. Khattar flew in from Rohtak to meet the delegation, which included heads of almost all leading developers and builders operating in Haryana.

Earlier, the government had refused to rework the property tax formula as sought by the builders’ body. It, however, gave an assurance with regard to an advertisement policy for places developed and maintained by private builders. The urban local bodies department had been insisting on sharing the revenue from advertisements in areas developed by such colonizers.

“The meeting lasted for over three hours. We had a lot of issues to be discussed. The CM was kind enough to summon all department heads to discuss these. Some issues like fire clearances were resolved, while those solved on the spot included clearances for electricity usage and advertisements in colonies among others. This was a fruitful meeting,“ claimed Jain.
