Government offices around India are infamous for how poorly they are maintained, many of which haven’t had their structures renovated for several years. But this incident would make the perfect example indicating how bad the situation really is.
In an electricity department building at the Banda district of UP, the infrastructure is so bad that the employees here have been made to wear helmets in the office to protect themselves in case the roof crashes.
No matter if they wear helmets on the street, they are wearing them under the roof here.
The roof hasn’t been fixed, instead, the employees here have to wear helmets as the last resort to avoid being injured. But even those helmets cannot ensure their safety once the roof crashes down.
Several images were shared by ANI showing the ramshackle office and the employees wearing helmets along with a caption that says:
According to a person working that the facility, the condition of the office building has remained the same since two years ago when he joined the place. The worker added that the employees had written to authorities but they didn’t respond.
In the following photo, you can see clearly that the office is dilapidated and officials seem heartless in guaranteeing their employees’ safety.
In 2017, there was a similar incident when employees working in a Bihar-based government office had to wear a helmet inside the building to avoid being injured by falling parts of the roof. A while ago, the building construction department of the Bihar government declared the dangerous state of the office but people kept working there.
It looks like the safety of these people is hanging by a thread and the authorities don’t seem to care, probably not until some real accident happens.
