#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate
#GujaratHighCourt had passed an order regarding sealing of hospitals with respect to fire approvals post #Bharuch Hospital fire tragedy.

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate
Justice Trivedi: Most of the hospitals are in residential colonies. They don't have fire NOC

Mihir Thakore: Can there be some relaxation for sometime so that we can treat the patients.

Trivedi J: 3 Months have gone. What have you done?

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate
Mihir Thakore: 400 Hospitals in Ahmedabad dont have proper approvals. This is not a small number.

Justice Trivedi: Why did you admit the patients even after there was a High Court order to comply with the Fire and other approvals?

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate
Justice Bela Trivedi: We will not let go of the authorities also. We will hit when the iron is hot.

All of you know, who run Hospitals, there are various approvals that need to be taken. You want to keep them only on paper.

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate
Justice Trivedi: Our January order is clear. There are 151 hospitals who didn't have NOC. The Municipality was directed to issue notice to all hospitals who do not have NOC.

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate #bharuchdeaths
Thakore: These hospitals have Fire NOC, but do not have a Building Use permission to run a hospital. They have building use permission for residence.

GujaratHC : If you have residential use permission, how can i let you run a Hospital

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate
Gujarat High Court: How can fire NOC sustain without a BU permission?

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate #bharuchdeaths
Its mandatory to have Building Use permission for specific building use. Residential building cannot be used as a hospital

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate #bharuchdeaths
Justice Trivedi: In the past few days, we have at least 3-4 instances of fires breaking out in hospitals. Court asks AG Kamal Trivedi what steps have been taken with respect to fire safety compliance in buildings

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate
We have taken efforts to ensure that fire teams visit each and every building. They have been asked to get fire NOCs: AG Trivedi

COVID hospitals were being run in commercial buildings without NOCs: Court

#bharuchdeaths #GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate
AG Trivedi: 2,450 hospitals under nagar palikas and local bodies do not have fire NOC. Include nursing homes etc.

3,894 schools do not have NOC

5,693 factories and industrial units do not have NOC

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate #bharuchdeaths
You have woken up only after Court took notice. What were you doing in the past? So many buildings do not have fire NOCs. Why is no action being taken? Justice Trivedi

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate #bharuchdeaths
Most directions of High Court's February 2020 order calling for status of compliance in various districts have not been complied with: Justice Trivedi

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate #bharuchdeaths
Neither corporations nor the State have given details on high-rise buildings: Advocate Amit Panchal points out

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate #bharuchdeaths
Compliance must be done. Mere filing of affidavits will not prevent fires: Justice Karia.

#GujaratHighCourt #GujaratCoronaUpdate #bharuchdeaths
Matter to be heard next on June 1.

This was issue related to judicial officers.. court had directed a meeting. Significant developments have happened: Senior Adv Dayan Krishnan for Delhi Judicial Officers Association.

Things are adequate.. govt has appointed Principal Secretary (Law) as nodal officer; Krishnan
The only small issue is with respect to declaration of frontline workers. They have been declared as frontline for vaccination only. If there are any other benefits, that should also accrue to us. That needs to be looked into by govt : Krishnan
