Home Haryana Government departments are flouting security arrangements

Government departments are flouting security arrangements

Mini Secretariat, District Police Headquarters, Civil Hospital and Municipal Council without NOC
Sirsa. Special care is taken in the construction of government and non-government buildings. The condition of NOC from the fire department has been applied for rescue in case of fire. No activity is allowed to be conducted in such buildings without NOC. The rules are strictly followed so that the situation can be controlled in case of disaster. There has been heavy loss of life and property due to fire incidents at many places in the country and the state. In recent days, many hospitals have lost their lives due to fire. Along with this, hundreds of spectators had to lose their lives due to the fire in the cinema hall of Delhi. Even after decades have passed, people shudder to remember Dabwali Agrikand.
In order to curb the incidents of arson and to control the situation in time, it has been made mandatory to have NOC from the fire department. NOC is issued only after the fire brigade confirms the security arrangements. It is ensured by the department whether there are escape routes in case of fire. Fire fighting equipment installed or not? Are hose pipes installed or not? Are there roads to enter and exit the building? Are there any obstacles in the way of traffic?
NOC is given only after examining the parameters set by the fire department. It is mandatory to obtain NOC from the department. But in Sirsa, government departments operate without NOC. The buildings where thousands of people visit every day, where hundreds of officers and employees work, those buildings are being operated without taking NOC from the fire department. That is, security is being played out openly. The disclosure of the sit-in by the government departments on security has been revealed in the information sought in RTI. It has been informed by the Fire Station Officer Sirsa that not only the Mini Secretariat, Civil Hospital, District Police Head Quarter, District Court, Municipal Council, Excise and Taxation Department, Income Tax Department and others in Sirsa have not taken NOC. From this shocking information in RTI, it can be easily guessed that how much negligence is being done on a large scale? If the requirement of NOC from the fire department is non-essential, then shouldn’t others be compelled to take NOC?
100 bed hospital without NOC!
The Civil Hospital of Sirsa has a capacity of 100 beds, in which patients are treated more than the capacity. The NOC from the fire department has not even been obtained for this building of the hospital with an area of ​​about 9500 square meters. That is, in case of arson, is God the master of patients, doctors, staff? The Civil Hospital has a building of 7050 square metres, while the Trauma Center has a building of 2450 square metres. The old building is three storeyed, while the trauma center is two storeyed. Major accidents have occurred due to fire in hospitals in many places in the country. However, NOC from the fire department for Sirsa Civil Hospital has not been obtained even after several decades. Know why people’s lives are being put at risk? Will safety arrangements be made in the aftermath of an accident?
A spoiled map of the mini secretariat!
The drawing of the mini secretariat has been messed with. Under the safety standards, the place which was left open, has been closed by making a cabin. Barriers have been created by placing cupboards and other items in the paths made for movement. In the mini secretariat, the hose pipe and other safety equipment are made of white elephants.
Disaster management rehearsal gimmick!
Every year on behalf of the district administration, a gimmick of rehearsal is done in the name of disaster management. In case of emergency, speeches are given in the name of rescue measures. But the security arrangements are not followed under the nose of the officers who should ensure public safety?
HUDA department without NOC
Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) new name Haryana Urban Development Authority’s (HSVP)’s rhetoric regarding NOC in HUDA sector is known to those who have had contact with HUDA. The department is compelled to manufacture as per its rules. Mechanisms are drawn in issuing NOC. But when it came to the same HUDA department to get NOC from the fire brigade department for its own office, the rules were put on hold. In RTI, HUDA has now been told by HSVP that it is being run temporarily in SCF No-23 constructed by Haryana Urban Development Authority, hence it did not take NOC from fire department. The extent to which the argument of the department is digested can be gauged. Departmental officers have sent photographs of ceasefire set up in the office in their defense.
RTI uncovered the poll
Agrasen Colony resident RTI activist Prof. Kartar Singh had sought information about the NOCs received by the government departments. In response to which it was told by the fire station officer Sirsa that NOC has not been obtained from the department by various government departments.
