Building collapses are common in India as developers try to cut corners by expending substandard textiles, and as multi-story organizes are erected with insufficient supervising. The massive demand for housing around India’s municipalities and pervasive fraud often result in developers contributing unauthorized floors or putting up illegal buildings.

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