Coimbatore: The Town Planning officials of the Coimbatore Corporation on Thursday stepped up their drive against building rule violations in commercial areas serving notices and sealing as many as 16 buildings. It may be recalled that as many as 11 buildings were sealed on Wednesday.

The drive is against deviations, violations and unauthorised constructions. Violations by commercial complexes often resulted in parking of vehicles on roads thus paralysing the flow of traffic. Corporation Commissioner Anshul Mishra directed the Town Planning Officer M. Soundarrajan to step up the drive.

Mr. Mishra said that the objective was not to seal or demolish buildings but to bring a culture of compliance to building rules.

Otherwise, safety of lives would be at stake. Officials said that the machinery first served notices and gave them ten days time to rectify the deviation only then stringent action such as demolitions are resorted to.

The Corporation in the last couple of days focused on commercial complexes on Cross Cut Road and Gandhipuram and Avarampalayam areas.

On Thursday, it shifted its focus to DB Road in R.S. Puram where the buildings seldom had provisions for parking space. In West as many as 10 buildings were sealed and notices were served and in Coimbatore East as many as six buildings came under the scanner of the civic body.
