Fire safety: Violators to lose water, power connections in Chandigarh

These are the new rules under the Delhi Fire Service Act-2007, which will now be extended to the UT.

Chandigarh: Not adhering to the fire safety norms can now cost violators the water and electricity connections.

Any encroachment, which is against the fire safety norms, will invite a challan, the official said.

Till now, the city was following the Delhi Fire Prevention and Fire Safety Act-1986, which has already been repealed by Delhi.

“Many developments took place in the past few years like coming up of multi-storey buildings, housing societies and coaching institutions, along with certain modifications in commercial establishments.

Thus, provisions under the 1986 Act were proving to be outdated. Since Delhi has already repealed it, we too have to go with the latest norms,” said a senior fire official.
