You referred Fire Act.
The Fire NOC is required while you seek permission for commencement construction.
This is applicable only for the new constructions after Fire Act was in force.
Industry has a choice to comply to Fire Act provisions for the construction before Fire Act came.
Once the NOC is taken, it has to renewed after every 6 months.
The AP local Industrial Development Corporation would not issue completion certificate if FIRE NOC is not taken, and this can become problematic in case of any fire or accident.
Proactively it is better to comply to all provisions.
Thanks & Regards,
