Delhi PG fire: MCD orders survey to check for violations

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has started a survey of all paying guest accommodations in the Civil Lines zone after a fire broke out in a women's PG accommodation. MCD will focus on the norms of the Delhi Master Plan 2021 and the height of buildings during the survey. There are no specific norms for operating a PG facility in residential areas and the corporation does not issue PG licenses. MCD has said that if the height of the PG building is more than 9m and accommodates more than 20 people, a fire NOC is mandatory.
