Is FIRE NOC required for warehouses where ready-manufactured goods are received, stored, and then despatched?
As per NBC 2016, warehouses come under GROUP H - STORAGE type buildings. An online search shows some states (Telangana, Maharashtra) say Fire NOC NOT required.
However, Table 7 Chapter 4 Fire Safety of NBC has sprinkler, hydrant requirements for warehouse. Who will check whether these fire safety measures are implemented?
Basically, I am looking for reference material on the fire safety requirements for warehouses in India.

@Isafetymr ready manufactured goods, does not confirm that the item is at fire or hazard risk or not, having fire fighting equipment and fire NOC both are different things

Of course NOC and fire fighting equipment are different.
Main question is whether Fire NOC required for warehouses.
If not required, then who is enforcing NBC requirements for warehouses (that is where I referenced sprinklers etc).

@Isafetymr - Fire is a state subject in India. Every state has considered different conditions to trigger the requirement of Fire NOC.
In some states, the Fire NOC for Warehouse is mandated based on the height of the building and in some states, it is based on the built-up area of the building.
Whether a warehouse required fire NOC or not, is not a deciding factor for that warehouse to follow NBC 2016 requirements. It's again varies based on the State Fire Prevention/Fire Service Act and Rules. Some made it mandatory to follow NBC.
NBC 2016 in itself is not a mandatory document until its been triggering by state/central level legislations or Fire NOC.
