Following a safety audit of its educational infrastructure, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has taken a significant step by engaging civil engineers to conduct thorough examinations of 19 identified buildings marked for potential demolition. The civic agency aims to address safety concerns and ensure the well-being of students and staff.

After the preliminary safety audit, which was prompted by the collapse of a nursery building in Bharathi Nagar on November 27, 2023, it was revealed that 19 BBMP school and college buildings are deemed unsafe.

To address these concerns, the BBMP has scheduled a crucial meeting with appointed experts on February 2. During this session, officials will deliberate on the findings and recommendations presented by the civil engineers. The primary objective is to determine whether demolition is necessary and, if so, to discuss plans for the construction of new, secure buildings in their place.

The report from the office of the chief engineer (quality assurance/control) outlines the overall safety status of the educational infrastructure.

According to the report, 73 school and college buildings have been deemed safe, while 67 require repair or renovation. The identification of 19 unsafe buildings underscores the urgency and importance of the upcoming consultation with experts, marking a proactive approach by the BBMP to address potential safety risks and ensure the integrity of its educational facilities.
