Building collapses are common in India as builders try to cut corners by expending substandard information, and as multi-story organizations are erected with inadequate oversight. The massive is asking for dwelling around India’s metropolitans and pervasive decay often result in builders including unauthorized floors or putting up illegal buildings.

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