KOLKATA: The urban development and municipal affairs department has issued 19-point guidelines on precautionary measures to be taken during demolition of buildings in congested residential areas. Building structures often demolished by developers without any safety measure, leading to air and noise pollution.

As per the new norms, no demolition work should be carried out at night and the noise level and air quality, as specified by existing rules, need to be maintained.

The authorities have observed that a large number of new buildings are coming up following demolition of old buildings located in congested residential areas without following proper safety and precautionary measures.

Across the city, particularly in Salt Lake, many old buildings are being demolished to make way for new structures. As a result, local residents here often complain of noise and sound pollution.

“Debris often injure locals. Also, dust pollution happens in the neighbourhood due to uncontrolled use of equipment to break the concrete and brickwork. Trees are also felled without permission from the forest department and are kept on the road,” said an official.

Keeping these issues in mind, the authorities have come up with the 19-point guidelines for builders to follow during demolition work in congested residential areas.

It has also been mentioned that no building, situated in an inhabited area, can be demolished during heavy storm or rain. A warning device should be installed in the area to warn workers in case of any danger.
