The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) started to raze the Deccan Mall in Hyderabad, on the 27th of January, Friday.

The decision to demolish the mall came after the mall caught fire recently, on the 20th of January.  However, after repeated attempts by the fire officials and police, they were not able to douse the fire, as the entire mall, located on Minister Road, Nallagutta region, was engulfed in fire.

Another major reason behind the decision to demolish the building was that it was constructed without all the necessary permits and structural deviations and additional floors.

The GHMC Limit said at least 8,000 to 9,000 illegal constructions are coming up every year, while applications for building permits average 12,000 to 13,000 annually.  The planning department permits only 4,000 structures.  The Deccan Mall sports building was said to be one illegal construction, without proper permits.

Notably, before starting the demolition, the GHMC authorities took several precautions including the removal of the high tension electric wires that were located near the demolition site and the fixing of high-focus lights to ensure workers can have better visibility, in case they have to work at night.

In addition, the families residing in close proximity to the commercial complex were also shifted to the rehabilitation centre set up by Hyderabad Collectorate. Authorities also created a buffer zone and police personnel were deployed to make sure people don’t venture near the building that was engulfed in the massive fire on the 19th of January.

The demolition process, which was supposed to begin earlier was cancelled due to a delay in the arrangement of proper equipment for the demolition process.  Concerned about the situation, the GHMC has given the demolition contract to another trader, which started the demolition process and is expected to complete the work in the next three days, by the 30th of January.
