Iit-b To Check Structural Audit Report, ET RealEstate

August 31, 2023

NAVI MUMBAI: IIT-Bombay will check the structural audit report of the multiple slab collapse-hit Tulsi Bhavan building in Sarsole village, sector-6, Nerul. The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) had appointed a structural auditor to inspect the three wings of the building, including the collapsed slabs, last week.

Meanwhile, activists have raised concern over constructing structures without amalgamating the plots amidst violations.

Tulsi Bhavan stands on three plots given by Cidco to project affected persons (PAPs) under the 12.5% scheme. The three wings (A, B and C) stand on plot numbers 310, 311 and 309, but not serially. The buildings collectively have 12 flats and shops. Some work in the hall of the third floor of the C-wing (on plot number 311) on August 23 resulted in multiple slab collapse killing two and injuring two others. The building does not have occupancy certificate (OC).

The NMMC had conducted structural audit of the building through its empanelled agency, Yash Engineering Consultants Pvt Ltd, for two days. Further, a team of IIT-Bombay visited the building recently.

Activist Anarjit Chauhan alleged, “During the construction, the mandatory 1.5m space was not left from roadside. Buildings were developed and joined without amalgamating the plots. Such type of serious violations led to denial of OC.”

NMMC junior engineer, Bhagwat Olekar said, “The structural audit has been completed. Their report will be vetted by IIT-B. Based on their reports further action plan will be suggested.”

The Nerul police have already booked the builder, a Mumbai-based architect and plot owner for causing death due to their negligent act, and endangering life of others among other sections of the Indian Penal Code.
