Govt Unveils New Building Code

New DeIhi: Builders can be made liable for the safety of the structure, as per the new national building code proposed by the Centre to be followed by the states.

The revised code was unveiled by Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan here on Wednesday. The code has been prepared by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) under the aegis of the Consumer Affairs Ministry.

The code is voluntary in nature but the states can incorporate them in their building bylaws.

"The code contains provisions on the use of new/innovative materials and technologies and on prefabricated construction techniques that can give a fillip to speedier construction to meet the objectives of Housing for All by 2022," Paswan said after releasing the code on the occasion of the World Consumer Rights Day here.

"It is a voluminous code with 34 chapters. It is used by local bodies for framing building bylaws. It is used by government departments in construction activity. It is used by private builders as well as professionals like architect, planners and engineers. It is also used for an academic purpose," BIS Director (Civil Engineering) Sanjay Pant told PTI.

Asked about key changes made to the building code, Pant said planners, structure designers and supervisors were made responsible for the safety of the structure while geo-technical engineers and builders were not included.

"Now, builders are also made responsible for the safety of the construction. Builders have to give a certificate saying that the building has been constructed as per the planned design submitted to the local bodies," he said.

Apart from making builders liable, the revised code has made necessary changes keeping in view the requirement of modern buildings.

For example, the code specifies fire and life safety norms for high rise buildings and a proper horizontal evacuation system in high-rise hospitals and public buildings.

It also provides for universal accessibility for senior citizens and differently abled citizens besides encouraging use new building material and alternative smart technologies.

The salient features of the revised code are norms for solar energy utilisation, inclusion of modern lighting technique including LED, updated provision on piped gas supply in houses and hospitals, solid waste management and rain water harvesting, besides high speed lifts for tall buildings.

For ease of doing business, the revised code has a detailed provision for streamlining the approval process in respect of different agencies in the form of an integrated approval process through single window approach thereby avoiding separate clearances from various authorities

    My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest suprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan.
