    That means, DC office is not maintaining the equipment. Worst case scenarios(What ever the cause or power failure), lift auto landing system has to function and lift car should land at the next nearest floor and door shall be wide open. Where Electrical inspectors? Do they check the backup battery life during inspection. Yes auto landing cost more due to backup battery. so ans so.

    If a person who is employed in the DC office and gets stuck in the lift in her own work premises, then can imagine the plight of general public in the district with all these smart city works going on since so many years. Are these signs of ache din?
