AMC tells firms to get NOC or face action


MT Bureau

Aurangabad: Om Prakash Bakoria, Municipal Commissioner ordered to issue notices to the petrol pumps, malls, marriage halls, kerosene agencies, educational institutions and hospitals that have not acquired the Non Objection Certificate (NOC) from the fire department and has instructed to take strict action against those involved in corrupt practises and irregularities.

Nearly 11 petrol pumps in the city do not possess the mandatory NOC and most of the marriage halls, private hospitals and educational institutions also lack the document. The AMC will start issuing notices to them in next two days.

Sources said that the officials will take action only after going through the paper work.

The AMC will also take action against the Ambarwadikar petrol pump, because of a LPG gas pump is located next to the petrol pump, which is a violation as per the law. The officials have started gathering necessary information regarding the petrol pump. The NOC of the LPG gas pump has expired in 2015. Most of the hotels and malls under the jurisdiction of the AMC are occupying NOCs of the Fire department of the MIDC. The civic chief has also ordered to locate such institutes and issue NOC of the AMC.
