Another tower of Chintels Paradiso Society in Gurugram declared unsafe


Another tower of Chintels Paradiso Society in Gurugram has been declared unsafe to live in by IIT Delhi, officials said.

This is the fifth tower in the residential complex in Gurugram’s Sector 109 to be declared unsafe by IIT Delhi in its audit report submitted to the district administration.

Gurugram’s Additional Deputy Commissioner Hitesh Kumar Meena said the IIT report would be made public and evacuation notices would also be issued soon.

Of the complex’s nine towers, the engineering institute has completed structural audits for all except one, Mr Meena said, adding that the audit report for tower J is awaited.

In its latest report, IIT Delhi said that tower H of the residential complex, where around 11 families live, is “unsafe for habitation”, while the condition of towers B and C is deteriorating, but they are not yet unsafe. .

District officials said that of the four towers – D, E, F and G – that were earlier declared unsafe, D, E and F have been vacated, while evacuation notices for tower G will be issued soon .

In February last year, six floors of Tower D partially collapsed, killing two female residents.

ADC Meena said, “We will soon release the audit report of IIT along with the immediate evacuation order as our committee constituted to monitor the matter is looking into the report.”

Rakesh Hooda, RWA president of Chintels Paradiso Society, said, “We have come to know that Tower H has been declared unsafe, but we have not yet been given the copy of the report.”
