KMC create 'repair fund' to help heritage building owners

For individuals who cannot afford to maintain their heritage buildings, the KMC will create a fund to take up urgent repairs.

All major corporates that own heritage buildings in Kolkata will have to ensure they are properly maintained. And private owners of heritage buildings to ensure proper upkeep by exploring means to monetize the properties by putting them into adaptive reuse.

KMC tell the corporates to take an initiative for upkeep of prominent heritage buildings they own. And also create a corpus for owners of heritage building who can’t repair them due to financial distress.

The KMC also plans to rent out a location next to the Dhapa dumping ground that has been beautified by the civic body’s solid waste management department for film shooting. The mayor said he had already written to the state environment minister seeking his help in this regard.
