2,600 high-rises violated fire safety norms in 4 years

In the past four years, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) fire brigade department inspected over 5,200 high rise buildings, of which, over 50% were found to have violated fire safety norms.

Notices were served to all 2,600 buildings and though the number is high, chief fire officer (CFO) PS Rahangdale claims that the city is safer than before.
