Building collapses are common in India, where builders try to cut corners by using poor-quality materials. Multi-storied structures are built with inadequate supervision.
A local resident, who did not give his name, said the site was only meant to hold a smaller structure and said officials turned a blind eye to the problem.
"They made an 8-story building out of what was supposed to be a 4-story building. People from the municipality used to visit the building but the builder still continued to add floors,"
