High-rise buildings to have new rules
The Bureau of Indian Standards is planning to come out with a new set of rules for construction of tall buildings. This will help officials and infrastructure companies, which are aiming to construct high-rise buildings in many metro cities including Hyderabad. At present, there are no specific rules to guide builders who are taking up mega projects. The BIS has constituted a highlevel committee consisting of seven experts to frame the rules. It is headed by the engineering expert, Aravind Srivastava.
