The fire comes a day after Mumbai's GST Bhavan had caught a Level IV fire. Nearly 3500 staff were working in the building in the Mazagaon area when the fire broke out.

Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar assured a probe into the fire but clarified no records were lost in the blaze due to digitisation.
Fire firefighters battled for almost three hours to douse the flames, which erupted in the ninth floor of a 10-storey government building, PTI quoted an official as saying.

Mumbai's chief fire officer Prabhat Rahangdale said, "the building was smoke-logged and hence firemen used breathing apparatus sets to put out the flames.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials said that no casualty were reported. 

Though staffers blamed short circuit for the fire, officials said the exact cause was under investigation.

On Thursday, a massive fire had partially gutted an Indian multinational company Rotla building (three-storey) in suburban Andheri.
