Ghaziabad: In a bid to avoid incidents like five-storey building collapse here, the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has launched a campaign against illegal constructions and till Tuesday has sealed 84 buildings.

"The GDA regularly checks the buildings for various criteria, including the material used and the age of the building. If a building fails to meet our criteria, we seal it," a GDA official requesting anonymity said.

"The drive to seal the illegal constructions will continue," he said.
