East Vinod Na­gar has fairly broad roads but five-storey build­ings stand on small plots. The struc­tures have been ex­panded ver­ti­cally but by us­ing sub­stan­dard and cheap ma­te­rial to con­struct ad­di­tional floors. Th­ese floors, usu­ally shabby and poorly con­structed, are in the dan­ger of col­laps­ing dur­ing a quake. Wide drains in the area are mostly non­func­tional, thus nar­row­ing the width of the road. Big am­bu­lances and fire brigades can­not en­ter the roads eas­ily. Dur­ing heavy rain, there is a high risk of young chil­dren fall­ing into the open drains in the area.
