Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) plans to conduct a physical survey of the Mumbai city way back in 2010 failed to pick up.
The plan was mooted by its special vigilance cell to physically survey the state of buildings especially from the thickly populated areas and initiate action if buildings are in dilapidated conditions and unsafe to live.
However, information gathered from the civic body revealed that it had floated tender to appoint agencies to cond physical survey in the city.
The BMC's former chief of special vigilance cell and head of the main emergency control IC Sisodia told DNA,'' The idea was to cover all wards especially densely populated ones for a physical survey.
Ultimately the physical survey never happened.''
