"The chief minister assured them of all necessary action, and directed the housing department to provide them with temporary shelter," the official said.

Fadnavis had announced in Legislative Council on Wednesday that the kin of those killed in the incident will be given an exgratia amount of Rs 5 lakh each.

The residential building collapsed on 25 July, killing 17 people.

Police have arrested local Shiv Sena worker Sunil Shitap for carrying out illegal structural changes in his ground-floor flats which allegedly led to the collapse.
