Mumbai, Jun 16 (PTI) Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has said 876 buildings in south Mumbai are dilapidated and in imminent state of collapse. A pre-monsoon survey conducted by the civic body said 876 buildings, mainly located in A, B and C wards are in dilapidated state. Besides being privately owned, the buildings belong to Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority, and the BMC. Wards like A, B and C have four to six storey buildings constructed 100-125 years ago, the survey said. "Roads and lanes are narrow, sewage and garbage disposal systems have completely collapsed leading to unhygienic conditions. Existing structures act as a death trap, in case of tragic accidents, like fire," the survey said.
