No security compromise at Wankhede: Shetty

"When we build a stadium, we take care of each and every person who will come to the stadium. And there would be no compromises in anything required by the government or any agencies," Shetty told reporters who were taken around the renovated stadium.

"Every permission that is required will be obtained and without that you can not have a stadium. You can not organise a match. But getting a permission is a procedure. It does not happen that you go to a counter and say now give me a NOC. There is a procedure which is followed and permissions are taken in a sequence.

"Rest assured, all permissions will be in hand, all things required from the fire department and the NOC (no objection certificate). What is required is the compliance at the new areas like the basement at the north stand which will house the control room for the television and the media conference room," he said.

Expressing displeasure at the non-compliance of fire safety norms at the revamped Wankhede stadium, city's Fire Brigade department had last week said that it would seek a reply from the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) in this regard.
