This is the part of a report compiled by MyRepublica.Com
A report prepared by the geology department in 1998 had concluded that the area is not safe for human settlement.
The department had also urged the local authorities not to allow the local residents to construct more than one-story buildings in the area.
Locals turned a deaf ear to the advice and went on to erect up to three-story buildings.

Meanwhile, the Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium, a unique platform launched in 2010 bringing together diverse partners working in disaster risk management in the country, has stated that urban populations are increasing people’s vulnerability to natural disasters, specifically earthquakes as urbanization is being done in a haphazard manner with little planning and poor infrastructure. The concept of urban risk reduction is relatively new in the disaster risk reduction field, the consortium said.
