Next building cracks, CM to probe whole Ruby construction

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 04 January 2014 22:02 IST

Chief minister Manohar Parrikar has assured a thorough inquiry into the construction of Ruby Residency building that collapsed today as its faulty design has also endangered the neighbouring building.

Parrikar disclosed to that the impact of the collapse of the building was so much that it has developed cracks to the neighbouring building of Ruby Residency.

“The whole design of the building is faulty due to which several workers died with one building collapsing today afternoon”, said Parrikar.

The Canacona police has already filed a criminal complaint against Bharat Developers (the builders), the contractor, the structural engineer as well as the Canacona municipal engineer, informed the chief minister.

But he wonders how the builder could construct these buildings with such a faulty design and poor construction.

According to him, the building collapsed since one pillar of the building was raised in a paddy field, which sunk, resulting into the collapse of the building like a multiple sandwitch.


“This is total negligence and such criminals will not be spared. I will inquire about the whole background of how this project was passed”, he said, when he was asked whether he would go beyond police inquiry into this tragic episode.

The seven-year old project of Ruby Residency was opposed by the local residents since it was built on a hill slope by also intruding into the paddy fields.

“Let me get all the information on Monday about this after we try and save as many lives as possible”, Parrikar told

The contruction coming in front of Canacona Bus stand is that of Chaudi councilor Hemant Gracias. The legality of his Hotel just beside the road at Tarir near inter-continental along with the Hotel of Gas Agency owner Prabhudessai is also being questioned.
