Noida: The Noida Authority board has approved a policy proposal for structural audit of high-rise buildings in the city, according to an official statement. The policy defines roles and responsibilities of the builder as well as the residents' association vis-a-vis repair of structures, if found defective during audit. The decision was taken during the 207th board meeting of the Noida Authority held at its office in Sector 6 here on Saturday.
The meeting was chaired by Uttar Pradesh Infrastructure and Industrial Development Commissioner and Noida Authority chairman Arvind Kumar with Noida Authority chief executive officer Ritu Maheshwari in presence. While the policy has been approved by the board, it would take around a week for it to get implemented due to paper work at the local level, a senior official told PTI.
There are around 100 high-rise projects in Noida, many of them having multiple towers, the official added. In relation to structural audit of multi-storey buildings located in the authority area, the statement read: "the structural policy was prepared by the Noida Authority on the demand of flat buyers and AOA (apartment owner's association), in which the Structural Audit Policy has been approved by the Authority Board with partial modifications".
"According to this policy, the structural audit report from empanelled IIT or NIT or expert institutions will be submitted by the developer before the partial or full occupancy certificate is issued," according to the statement. (PTI)
