Four individuals, including an auto-rickshaw driver, were injured and were rushed to the local civic hospital. The building, which had been declared dilapidated, was found to be vacant with operational shops, including seven bars and permit rooms.


Preventive measures and precautions can play a crucial role in avoiding such incidents.

  • Regular Structural Inspection:

Conduct regular inspections of buildings, especially older structures, to identify potential weaknesses or signs of deterioration in balconies, slabs, and other load-bearing structures.

  • Structural Maintenance:

Ensure that timely repairs, renovations, and reinforcement work are carried out to maintain the structural integrity of the building.

  • Building Codes and Regulations:

Adhere to local building codes and regulations while constructing or renovating buildings, ensuring the use of quality materials and proper construction techniques.

  • Expert Consultation:

Seek advice from structural engineers or professionals experienced in building maintenance to assess the structural stability of balconies and other elements.

  • Public Awareness:

Create awareness among residents and building occupants about the importance of reporting any signs of structural instability or concerns to the appropriate authorities.

  • Evacuation Plans:

Develop evacuation plans and procedures in case of emergencies to ensure the safety of all occupants.

  • Proper Balcony Usage:

Encourage responsible behavior on balconies, avoiding overcrowding, excessive weight, or activities that may compromise the structural integrity.

By implementing these preventive measures, addressing structural issues promptly, and raising awareness among individuals regarding safety precautions, steps can be taken to reduce the risk of balcony collapses and similar incidents.
