The Mormugao municipal council has issued a notice to Premawati Niwas building at Vasco under section 190 of Goa Municipalities Act 1968, by declaring it unsafe for human occupation and posing a risk to the lives and property of the occupants and general public.

The MMC chief officer Agnelo Fernandes said that based upon complaints, the municipal authorities had carried a site inspection of Premawati Niwas building which is located opposite the police quarters at Dattatreya Deshpande road in Vasco.
