Aizawl, Apr 23 (UNI) The much-awaited Aizawl Development Authority Building Regulations, 2008 will come into force from May 2, Aizawl Development Authority (ADA) chairman Lalfakzuala said here today.
The Aizawl Development Authority, constituted as demanded by the Aizawl Development Authority Act 2005, has made the building regulations first priority, Lalfakzuala said.
The regulations will be applicable to the design and structure of newly constructed buildings and dismantling, repairing, demolition and alteration of the existing buildings.
Most buildings in Aizawl have been constructed without certain safety measures and the fact that the entire Mizoram falls under earthquake prone zone makes the city highly vulnerable to major disaster.
Site plan, building plan and structural plan and structural drawing/specification should be made by ADA-approved engineers/architect, who will further supervise the construction of the buildings.
Contravention of any of the regulations will be liable to imprisonment and fine.
