BHUBANESWAR: The Bhubaneswar Development Authority’s (BDA) initiative to use implosion technology for building demolition has been deferred due to delay in processing of the requisite permission.
Even though Commissionerate Police has approved the BDA’s proposal on use of implosion technology, the latter has to get additional NOCs to ensure no damage or injury to property or life during the demolition.
BDA officials along with the Indore-based implosion technology expert made a presentation before the police on Tuesday.
The special drive has been deferred till February 18 after which about eight illegal constructions will be lined up by the BDA for demolition.
The implosion technology will be used for high rise construction as manual demolition usually takes days to be completed.
