Lift Safety Law in Uttar Pradesh

This petition had 513 supporters

Can you imagine your loved one trapped inside a lift or inside a falling lift !!!! Absolutely not , but this is how the largest state of India , the Uttar Pradesh is being kept. 

Uttar Pradesh has growing number of urban population living in multi storied buildings but shockingly state doesn't have Lift Safety Law in place. This is utmost scary as it keeps millions of people out of safety net of state regulations. Thus giving controllers  a free run to play with safety of large number of people and growing number of lift accidents is indicator of this negligence leading to accidents. 

Major states like Delhi, Haryana, Maharashtra, Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Assam, West Bengal, etc have separate legislation for regulating the installation and operation of lifts in their respective states, yet no public policy, or subordinate legislation has been formulated to govern lifts and escalators installed in the state of UP. 

Why should we be kept on mercy of others, lets stand out to make difference and to pull out our friends, families and everyone out of this dangerous situation. 

So I demand that development authorities be directed to ensure that all lifts installed in buildings comply with the standards prescribed in the National Building Code.
