Building downfalls are common in India as developers try to cut corners by using substandard substances, and as multi-story designs are made with insufficient oversight. The massive demand for housing around India’s cities and pervasive bribery often to be translated into developers adding illegal 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.
