Construction not illegal, says district administration
Bharatiya Sanskriti Darshan Trust sought permission for construction at their Kesnand campus in 2002 and it was granted
The district administration said the Bharatiya Sanskriti Darshan Trust had sought permission for the construction at their Kesnand campus at Wagholi in 2002 and it was granted.
Resident Deputy Collector Anil Pawar said since NA permission was sought for the construction and it was granted, the construction was not illegal. "The incident took place at the under-construction building when the dome structure caved in and construction workers were buried under the debris,'' Pawar told mediapersons.
Assistant Director, Town Planning, U L Londe, said in rural areas plinth checking and completion certificates are checked by the district administration. "We visit the site only to check the side margins and after the building is completed we check the certificates from RCC designers and architect,'' said Londe.
He said the ultimate onus lies on RCC designers, architects and site engineers who have to submit the relevant certificates to the district administration.
"We have only seven members of the total 15 staff delegated for giving permissions. It is practically impossible to check each structure," added Londe.
