Already, the MC has begun the survey of parking and fire safety arrangements in these sectors.
In a survey conducted by the UT Administration, as many as 95 per cent residents, who participated in the poll for providing solutions for making Chandigarh a smart city, wanted sectors 17, 22, 35 and 43 to be revamped.
The staff has been directed to provide a complete report of parking capacity and give a report of fire safety of each and every private and government building falling in these sectors.
All schools, colleges, shops, multiplexes, hospitals and other commercial buildings that fall in these sectors are being inspected for the fire safety and coding. As per the colour coding system, green, yellow or red boards would be fixed outside a building prominently in order to tell people whether it is safe or unsafe for them.
A green board would mean that the building is equipped and has sufficient fire fighting measures to handle
Yellow will depict that the building is partially equipped and thus partially compliant whereas red will signify that the building is ill-equipped to handle fire emergencies.
