FAULTY ELEVATORS INSPIRE PROTESTS IN INDIA
In light of recent protests against poor maintenance of elevators in multistoried housing across India, a publication is urging residents to take a stand and seek damages. Hindustan Times reports that multiple rallies being held indicate that poor maintenance of elevators by the builders is becoming an endemic problem in India. Builders reportedly flout safety laws, neglect regular safety maintenance and don’t include automatic rescue devices. The news outlet encouraged residents to file complaints with the state enforcement agencies.
