Many residential areas in metropolitan cities like Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai and Bangalore are no longer distinguishable from planned industrial areas. Majority of the buildings lack NoC from the fire department and continue to sustain huge populations at the risk of their lives.
The municipal corporations and local bodies are responsible for providing fire services in many states. But due to lack of resources, fire services are ill equipped in providing adequate fire safety cover to the population. Based on a study, 65 percent deficiency was reported in fire stations.
According to the Ministry of Home Affairs, in towns with a population over 1 lakh, there is a huge deficiency of fire fighting infrastructure. Laxity in following fire safety measures caused many major fires in various occupancies and some of them even resulted in catastrophes.

Training of employees and building awareness among citizens about fire prevention and protection measures is also of paramount importance. Mid-day meal cooking in schools should be regularly monitored by fire service departments at least once in six months.
