The division bench comprising Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice Nitin Jamdar also issued notices to the state Public Works Department (PWD) and Fire authorities.

V Thanumoorthy, a retired chemical consultant, had approached the High Court seeking direction to authorities to ensure adequate fire safety measures in in the wake of the blaze that gutted four floors of Mantralaya building on June 21.

The PIL seeks for the Maharashtra Fire Prevention and Life Safety Measures Act to be strictly implemented in all buildings where sensitive documents and records are maintained and preserved for decades.

The PIL further points out that none of the libraries or bar association rooms in the High Court have sufficient fire extinguishers and fire censor alarms.

It further prays for records and documents of litigations to be maintained in electronic form with regular updates.

The High Court today directed all the parties to file their reply by September 27.
