GURGAON: In a bid to enhance disaster preparedness, owners of high-rise structures and hazardous industries in Haryana's Gurgaon district will be asked to submit a compliance report on safety measures to the district authority within two months.

"The owners will have to submit a compliance report on safety measures to be adopted as per guidelines of the state government issued from time to time on their premises within two months to District Revenue Officer Tarsem Sharma," Deputy Commissioner Shekhar Vidyarthi today said at a review meeting on the preparedness of disaster management in Gurgaon.

Those who fail to adhere to these directions will be penalised, he said.

Presiding over the meeting, Vidyarthi directed officials of Municipal Corporation Gurgaon (MCG), Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) and District Town Planner (DTP) to prepare a list of high-rises in the district.

The DTP will then prepare a blueprint showing locations of these buildings on the map. A similar blueprint of the hazardous industries will also be prepared by the Haryana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation.

The authorities would also have to show on map major and alternative routes to the premises or buildings, so that in the event of any accident these routes can be used to reach the affected area or to evacuate the premises.

Vidyarthi directed the authorities to conduct a survey to identify the high-rises and hazardous industries.

A team of officials would also conduct socio-auditing of the buildings to check whether the safety measures are in place or not. The team constituted by the Deputy Commissioner includes representatives of Deputy Commissioner's office, DTP, Fire, HUDA and PWD (B&R) departments.

The team would inspect at least two buildings or premises at random every month and submit its report in the monthly review meeting.
