The district administration officials have rushed to the spot to take stock of the situation there. Relief and rescue teams have also been alerted.
The fresh incident of building collapse comes days after at least nine people were killed in the Shah Beri village incident.
Heavy downpour in the national capital region since this morning is likely to hamper the rescue work as most of the areas are inundated and roads water-logged, leading to heavy traffic jams in parts of Delhi and Noida.
Though Delhi and its neighbouring areas including Noida, Gurugram and Ghaziabad received a heavy rainfall, the rains provided a much-needed relief from the ongoing sultry weather that has been hovering across the national capital for the last couple of days.
Waterlogging at several places, including DND (Delhi-Noida-Direct) Flyway, Noida Sectors 16 and 18, Vasundhara area in Ghaziabad and several underpasses across the Delhi-NCR, were reported.
Meanwhile, the IMD says that the heavy rain is likely to continue throughout the day.
There is a possibility of scattered rain in most part of the national capital region, according to a Met Department official.
According to the weatherman, the maximum and minimum temperature expected to hover around 32 and 26 respectively today.
