GURUGRAM: Two more towers in the Chintels Paradiso society have been declared unsafe by officials said on Tuesday citing a structural audit report by IIT-Delhi. Last year two people died there after Tower D partially.

Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Vishram Kumar Meena said that the IIT-Delhi team completed the sampling work of towers A and G while the sampling for Tower H is in progress. Towers E and F of the society in Sector 109 are not fit for habitation. 

Meena said that the IIT-Delhi team has found structural deficiencies in the construction during the structural audit of towers E and F of these towers and repair are not possible on technical and economic grounds. The allottees of the two towers would be rehabilitated as per the rules and the IIT-Delhi team has also recommended that E and F towers be closed. 

In November 2022 IIT-Delhi had earlier declared Tower D unsafe in its investigation report whose valuation report is also being shared with the residents of the tower and the developer for the settlement-related process.

“As per the report, it is found that a high amount of chloride is used in the concrete for construction purposes. Due to this steel and concrete used in construction got eroded”, said ADC Meena, who is also the chairman of the SIT constituted by the district administration to investigate the February 2022 incident.
