Dilapidated buildings: govt. must intervene

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

THEY have been in a dilapidated state for the last several years. The tenants do not want to contribute towards the repair costs. They want landlords to spend money and  do the repairs. The landlords want the tenants to leave, but the tenants have nowhere to go. The government evidently do not want to bring in some law and set things right.

The tenants are not prepared to take any risks. They are certain, and rightly so, the landlords would not carry out repairs. The tenants would rather face danger than vacate the buildings. It has happened before. The moment the tenants leave, the building is demolished. And they stay that way for ever. The tenants have learnt by their experience that they should never leave and they should stick to their rooms ever if the buildings are on the verge of collapse.

If the governmentintervenes in a big way, something can be done. For instance, repairs or redevelopment can be done under the supervision of MHADA. If the government presence is there, tenants confidence will remain. Without the intervention of the government, nothing will be done.
