During cyclone Yaas, reportedly, staircases of three separates residential blocks in the township were damaged. Although no mishap took place, the incident caught attention of the district administration. Often, many residents also complain about the poor upkeep of certain section of quarters in the township.
BSL township has 10 sectors in which more than three lakh people reside. Many of these residential buildings in each of the sectors required repairing and maintenance. During monsoon or rainfall, the subsidence of roofs or staircases is a common occurrence.
BSL’s chief of communication, Manikant Dhan said the civil department has already identified 32 residential blocks in different sectors and taken up repairing and maintenance tasks. “Due to partial lockdown and Covid-19, repairing activities were delayed but now it is being done on a war-footing ahead of monsoon,” he said.
