Building collapse: Delhi govt, MCD get notices

“Allegedly, the MCD had served notices on 38 buildings with flooded basements and asked the residents to vacate within 24 hours, even as there is a blame game in the MCD over illegal constructions,” the NHRC statement said.

“No official is willing to comment how illegal floors were allowed to be constructed in the building that collapsed. The MCD has no record, with the earliest dating to 1971 when it was just a one-room apartment,” it added. The NHRC has asked for a report within four weeks.
