Why Families Stayed In 100-Year-Old Structure In Mumbai Despite Danger

BMC Disaster Management Cell said: "Kesarbai building has collapsed at Tandel street, in Dongri, Mumbai".

Fire official Ashok Talpade said dozens of rescuers were at the site, where they pulled out three people alive and rushed them to a hospital.

The area consists of narrow roads and lanes and the dingy buildings were affected by the rains a few weeks back.

The Kesarbai building in south Mumbai's thickly populated Dongri area, home to many families, had been designated a "C1 building" by Mumbai's civic body in 2017 - which means it was marked for evacuation and demolition after a safety audit.

According to reports, at least 40-50 people were still feared trapped in the debris.

"We have moved five of our vehicles to the spot".

While authorities have yet to release any official figures on the number of injuries and casualties, several Indian news organizations are reporting that two people have died. Abdul Gaffar Shaikh, 85, who lives in nearby Kasai building that was among those vacated, said, "Our building experienced tremendous vibrations when the other building collapsed".

Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis said the building was roughly 100 years old and illegal, promising that an inquiry will be ordered. While Mhada CEO Milind Mhaiskar told TOI that the building was "illegal" and did not figure on its records, a top BMC official said the structure was authorised because Mhada had been collecting cess from the occupants.

-After the collapse, a part of the building was left standing.

Legislator Bhai Jagtap said residents had complained to housing authorities to take prompt measures as the building was very old and in a dilapidated state for a long time. The entire focus is on rescuing the people trapped. As per primary estimates, 11 families are staying in that building and women and children are there among those feared trapped.

The cause of the collapse is not clear.
