High-rise buildings with a height of more than 12m will be subjected to rigorous scrutiny with the state government mandating multiple checks during their construction.

This is a key feature of the Tamil Nadu Combined Development and Building Rules, 2019, five years after an 11-storeyed tower under construction collapsed atMoulivakkam killing 61 people.

The Common Building Rules, notified by the municipal administration and water supply department on Monday, was released by chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami.

It has brought the entire state under the single umbrella of development regulations that were separate for Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) and Directorate of Town and Country (DTCP) till now.
