Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority published the list of dilapidated buildings Friday.

This is part of a routine procedure carried out before the rainy season each year.

According to the list, the number of dilapidated buildings has increased this year. This year, Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority has published a list of 23 buildings, which is 16 more than the dilapidated building count last year.

These buildings are from the south Mumbai area. Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority had carried out a survey of 16,000 buildings from the area as part of the routine pre-monsoon preparations.

Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authoritywill shift the residents of these buildings to transit camps in the city.

These buildings house a total 506 residential and 308 commercial plots.

Nearly 403 residents will be shifted to Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority’s transit camps. Out of the 403 residents, 197 have made their own residential arrangements.

The president of Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority’s repair and redevelopment board, Vinod Ghosalkar, will visit these dilapidated buildings on June 1.

“If the rest of the residents don't shift to the transit camps, Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (Mhada) will evacuate them from these buildings. As these buildings are dangerous to live in, we do not want to take any risk,” said Mr Ghosalkar.
