There were slab collapses at two residential buildings constructed by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (Mhada) in Borivli and Currey Road on Sunday.
No one was injured in the incidents.
These incidents are apart from the collapse of a balcony slab of an abandoned building in Nalasopara, which killed a pedestrian.
Around 12.15pm, at Magathane in Borivali (east), the third-floor balcony of a five-storey building collapsed. Residents were immediately asked to vacate the building, but later they were allowed to return. “They are putting in place some support for the building.
Residents have been asked to shift out after two days as staying there can be dangerous.
No one was injured so no case has been registered,” said Bharat Worlikar, senior police inspector, Kasturba Marg police station.
At Currey Road, a portion of the ceiling of a fourth-floor flat collapsed in the six-storey Matru Chhaya building.
“This building was not identified as dangerous,” said an official from the civic disaster management cell.
“The Currey Road building was a redeveloped structure.
Our engineers have been to the spot and have made arrangements to clear the debris.
The tenants should maintain the structure,” said Vaishali Wagh, public relations officer, Mhada.
