At least 19 dead in Mumbai building collapse
At least 19 people have died, and 14 have been injured after a 3-storey building collapsed in the heart of Mumbai. Buildings collapse in Mumbai every monsoon, every year people are trapped in debris and killed. What explains this annual tragedy?
This particular building was extremely old. They had been instructed many times to vacate but the people wouldn't just do it. Someone I know visited the building 10 years ago and he was scared the building might collapse back then.

building codes shouldn't be by-passed by grease-palm.
this should not happen in India or any country!? god help those people! sending my thoughts from Ireland
Indian Engineer are truly honest with their work
Corrupt BMC never inspect these types building , thay should support to maintain building condition. BMC has lots of funds but all are going to corrupt leaders.
not restricted to the BMC. corruption is an integral part of indian culture
Don't know about you but where I live bmc has been telling us since years that our building is old and inspects our bldg every few months our building is more than 100 years old
Mumbai Municipality is with political party called ShivSena for past 3 decades. Corruption is the main cause of this disaster. Mumbai Municipal corporation annual budget is bigger than many state governments in India
They need to make buildings stronger. It's not normal for buildings just to fall so many times. Why does this occur in India a lot.
authority told to tenant leave the building but they didn't listen........and building was built in 1950s.
Because these buildings are more than 100 yrs old

Buildings collapse,Trains derailing,So many things in the world.
Mumbai's Use of shitty building materials in construction could be your answer
Actually these bldg are more than 100 years old even my bldg is more than 100 yrs old and the bmc has been telling us since 3 yrs to reconstruct it they even made free repairs in our building and even inspects our bldg every few months
An old problem. And tearing down old buildings without a plan to put up another........is problematic
This happens in Miami too.
Those are old building India need to do proper construction
a daily occurrence in India. Only this one got to the news. Thousands more unreported incidents. Now you know why India's at No.150 on the World Press Freedom Index ?
