The Maharashtra State's Energy Department in conjunction with the Municipal Corporation and the Fire Department has made it mandatory to install and operate a fire evacuation lift in every high-rise building scaling 70 mtr and above since January 2018. 
The Energy Department has issued the circular as advisory on installation of the fire evacuation lifts in the high rise buildings. 
Maharashtra has become the first state in India to make fire evacuation lifts mandatory for buildings. 
As per the new circular, henceforth, it is mandatory to obtain the permission for erection and license for operation of fire evacuation lifts in Maharashtra. 
The implementation of the new circular shall be effective immediately from the date of issue for the upcoming fire evacuation lift installations and shall apply with retrospective effect to the existing fire evacuation lift installations.
