In addition to assessing the car porch, the Megah Rise management also conducted an inspection of all ceilings within the mall, confirming the integrity and safety of all areas, to ensure the safety of tenants and shoppers.

Although the main entrance and the car porch were temporary closed, Megah Rise Mall continued to operate as usual since the recent incident, with all other services and amenities available to shoppers without interruption.

In addition to Deepavali celebrations, Megah Rise Mall looks forward to the return of the second weekend of the REplace Project event, set for November 10 -13, featuring workshops on eco-friendly practices.

On 28 October, during heavy rain and strong winds, the ceiling outside the front entrance of the mall collapsed at around 3pm.
