Shree Ram Chambers and Windsor Plaza were sealed in Alkapuri, in Sayajigunj Alankar Tower and Antriksh Complex and Blue Diamond Complex in Fatehgunj were sealed. Help from police was taken to evacuate the building and MGVCL was asked to disconnect the electricity.
Despite repeated notices, several commercial and residential buildings in different areas of the city have failed to take NOC. On January 1, Vadodara Fire and Emergency Services (VFES) had given notices as per state government’s gazette to such buildings threatening to seal them and disconnect electricity if fire equipment is not installed and NOC is not taken.
“We waited for two months and yet no action was taken by the owners and occupants, so we started sealing the buildings and disconnecting electricity on Thursday,” said in-charge chief fire officer Parth Brahmbhatt.
“Everything will be restored only after fire equipment is installed and fresh NOC is taken,” said Brahmbhatt. He added that in coming days too more such properties will face same action.
