KOLKATA: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation buildings department may assess the structural safety of the old buildings located in Durga Pituri Lane in Bowbazar in the wake of collapse of a portion of a sunshade of a vacant house in the vicinity of the East-West Metro construction zone.

However, the civic brass wants the owners of dilapidated buildings to take the advantage of a cluster housing project that the KMC has planned for those who had to vacate their houses in phases since 2019 due to a subsidence issue.

“We may need to conduct a temporary study on the health of the buildings that may face a fresh subsidence threat. But we can’t allow residents who have been shifted out of the zone to resettle. We have planned a cluster housing project for the evacuees and agreed to offer special FAR for dwelling units. While some of them have accepted our plan, majority of those shifted wants to get back to their own place. Now with a fresh collapse threat, we will need to take up the issue again,” said a KMC official.

Councillor Biswarup Dey visited the spot on Friday afternoon. He stressed on constant vigil on the old buildings.
