  • Check if Buildings are Earthquake Resistant Before Buying in NCR or Gurgaon

    Before you go and buy any apartment in NCR, please check if the building is earth quake resistant.

    This is more important if its a NEW high rise building.

    because in recent times, there has been lot of seismic activity in the north . Even today it happened.

    Since you are dumping your life's savings into these real estate stuff, be extra cautious.

    Many builders claim their structure to be EQ resistant.How to check whether these are really EQ resistant.What about old structures.Can these be retrofitted to become EQ resistant.

      The building approvals department issues a certificate I believe that the structure is EQ resistant. If the builder is not lying ( which is unlikely), then he should have a piece of doc from the authorities which states the design (atleast) incorporated EQ factor.

      No. Old buildings can not be retrofitted. Sad but true.
