Bhubaneswar: Bhubaneswar-based mall Utkal Kanika Galleria at Gautam Nagar, which had been sealed by Commissionerate Police for not complying with fire-safety norms, has finally received Fire Safety Certificate.
The Fire Safety Certificate granted by Odisha Fire Services is valid for three years and covers the basement, ground floor and remaining three floors of the commercial establishment.
Commissionerate Police had sealed the mall earlier this month for not complying with the parking and fire-safety norms. It has been alleged that while not making adequate parking space available for its customers, the mall had also opened for public without obtaining any occupancy certificate.
On the other hand, the mall authorities had stated that they have complied with the norms but their application for fire safety certificate has been kept pending.
