Unsafe Building To Be Demolished In Joshimath


Joshimath: The Chamoli district administration on Thursday issued orders to demolish yet another unsafe building in subsidence-hit Joshimath and invited suggestions from affected people on their rehabilitation.

The unsafe house to be scientifically dismantled is located in ward number seven of the Joshimath municipal area. Experts had declared it unsafe after a recent survey.

The order to dismantle it was issued by District Magistrate Himanshu Khurana after taking a written consent from house owner Dinesh Lal, the official said.

Khurana had on Wednesday ordered the demolition of two unsafe residential houses and PWD’s dak bungalow in the town.

The DM, who also heads a committee set up to design a rehabilitation plan, said he has sought suggestions from the affected people on their permanent rehabilitation.
