Guidelines for Skyscrapers
The EAC had earlier identified some skyscrapers in Kerala which did not have evacuation plans. Under the new guidelines it has recommended the height of the building be linked with the width of the road on which the proposed building is to be located and stipulated the distance of the fire station from the building. The new guidelines are mostly to do with the safety and security of the occupants . The guidelines make it mandatory for carrying out periodic mock drills in these buildings. Also a no-objection certificate is to be obtained from the fire department twice for any highrise project, before the construction and before the possession. Welcoming these new set of guidelines, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has started that these guidelines appear to be good on paper, but how these are to be implemented would make them worthwhile.
