Building breakdowns are common in India as builders try to cut corners by applying substandard cloths, and as multi-story designs are made with inadequate oversight. The massive demand for casing around India’s municipalities and pervasive dishonesty often result in builders adding unauthorized storeys or putting up illegal buildings.

In August 2017, 33 parties were killed when an apartment house collapsed in India’s financial capital of Mumbai.
