The fire department has closed a residential society club for non-compliance of fire safety standards. On January 7, the fire department inspected Malibu Town, during the inspection, no fire control system was found in the town club.
“While conducting an inspection, no fire control system was found at the building of Maple Club in Malibu Town. The department had also issued a deadline to the developer for installing the system. But he failed to install the system within given time period.” said an official from fire department.
Problem with Maple Club-
On January 7, the fire department inspected Malibu Town in response to a complaint by a resident named Raman Sharma. During the inspection, no fire control system was found in the town. Considering this, the fire department, on January 12, issued a notice to the developer. On February 12, officials from the fire department conducted another club inspection, but the fire system was not installed despite the notice.
As a result, the fire department sealed the Maple club for violation of fire safety standards. And approached the Gurgaon police to lodge an FIR against the developer.
Isham Singh Kashyap, Assistant Divisional Fire Officer has described the condition of club-
Maple club is a part of the residential building, specially designed for social gatherings. However, the condition of this club is not good and its basement was found to be in a poor condition. Such type of negligence from Malibu Real Estate not only violates the terms and conditions of the Haryana Fire Service Act. But it is also a threat to the lives of people. So, we have requested the Gurgaon police to lodge an FIR against the developer.
In November the town and country planning (DTCP) disapproved the township’s completion certificate for failure to complete construction of community sites. Out of 16 approved community sites, only 11 sites have been constructed according to the building norms.
