GURUGRAM: A fifth tower at Chintels Paradiso, where a vertical cave-in of five flats led to the death of two residents in February 2022, has been found to be unsafe for living by experts at IIT-Delhi, which has been brought in by the government for a structural audit of the complex.
The latest audit report has declared Tower H unsafe and the administration is likely to issue an order to evacuate it.
So far, towers D, E, F and G have been declared unsafe by the institute and the district administration issued orders under the Disaster Management Act, 2005 to evacuate residents. Owners have been offered a refund.
The IIT-Delhi report, submitted to the district administration on Wednesday, also declared towers B and C safe for now. The institute, however, recommended a structural audit of these two towers annually to keep a check on the deterioration level due to corrosion and the presence of chloride in concrete.
Earlier, the IIT-Delhi team recommended an annual structural audit for Tower A, which is showing signs of deterioration. The audit report of Tower J is still awaited.
Deputy commissioner Nishant Yadav said a committee headed by additional deputy commissioner will soon share the structural audit report and make it public.
