They have also been directed to conduct the audit of their own buildings.

A day after the fire gutted offices at Mantralaya, the urban development department issued a government resolution asking the municipal corporations and councils to complete the fire safety audit of their own buildings by the empanelled agencies in one month. 

They were also directed to follow up with the departments concerned to ensure that the discrepancies and necessary compliances are met within the specified time.

The municipal corporations of leading cities have been directed to conduct fire safety audits of malls, restaurants, starred hotels, commercial establishments and offices in the next three months.
Meanwhile, the government has also announced a mock fire drill in the Mantralaya building on July 2.

“This would help the administration in creating awareness about the measures to be taken in the time of emergency and will also help build confidence among the employees. Top officials from every floor have been appointed as field marshals, who will take care of the evacuation of the people from their respective floors,” said an officer from the relief and rehabilitation department.
