##SMALL-IMAGE#New Delhi: In the backdrop of recent cases of building collapse in central Delhi's Karol Bagh, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) mayor on Thursday appealed to people to report the civic authorities if they feel their property is in a “dangerous condition”, officials said.
“On people’s request, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation's engineers will inspect the property and take appropriate action,” a senior official said. A four-storey building had collapsed in Karol Bagh's Dev Nagar area on Wednesday morning, although no one was injured in the incident.
North Delhi Mayor Adesh Gupta has taken cognisance of the building collapse incident in Karol Bagh, and appealed to citizens to report to NDMC engineers if they feel that their property is in a dangerous condition, the official said.
Engineers of the building department can come and examine such properties for safety, he said.
