Earlier on Monday, the Delhi government issued a notification with 10 amendments to the building bylaws, 2016, to enhance fire safety in hotels in the national capital. 

In the notification, special directives were given regarding the use of rooftops, basements, passages and exit routes for curtailing the spread of fire in public buildings, the government said in a statement.

"All existing and future guest houses must install carbon monoxide smoke alarms, fire doors on each floor and remove all kinds of combustible materials from passages, exit routes and rooftops," the notification said.

The modified bylaws will be applicable to the area under jurisdiction of the concerned local bodies -- East Delhi Municipal Corporation, North Delhi Municipal Corporation and South Delhi Municipal Corporation.
