Delhi AAP Government strict order to hotels clubs restaurants follow fire norms otherwise

Delhi News: The Aam Aadmi Party government of Delhi has taken seriously the increase in fire incidents in the national capital amid the scorching heat. The managers of hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs serving liquor have been clearly ordered to compulsorily pay attention to all fire safety measures including warehouses to control the incidents of fire. The government will not tolerate negligence at any level in this matter.

The Delhi government has given these orders after the death of seven children in a fire incident at New Born Baby Care Hospital in Vivek Vihar, East Delhi. The Delhi Fire Department currently gives No Objection Certificate (NOC) only to restaurants and eateries built in an area of ​​90 square meters and above.

It is important to follow fire safety measures

A recent circular issued by the Delhi government states that the Excise Department is looking into compliance with fire safety measures in restaurants built in an area of ​​less than 90 square meters. The departmental order said, “Delhi is currently facing severe heat, due to which many incidents of fire have occurred and hence the issue of fire NOC for restaurants and eateries has been reviewed.”

Get your NOC renewed before time

The Excise Department has directed all existing licensees having area of ​​90 square metres and above to renew their fire no objection certificate (NOC) before its expiry and take all safety measures as per the safety norms.

According to the Delhi Excise Department data, there are about 1,000 HCR (hotel, club, restaurant) category premises in the city, including about 700 ‘restaurant-bars’. Officials said that the number of hotels and clubs that have excise licenses is about 165 and 50 respectively.
