Roads are swelling in Mumbai because Road Contractors lay another layer of new road material on the existing dilapidated roads. This saves cost. Who will dig the road to level and put again costly road material like Khadi and Tar / cement? But end result is : roads are swelling or increasing the level of ground.

Till 2005, BMC allowed ground floors in the newly constructed buildings. And needless to say that old buildings always has ground floor residence and commercial occupation. Stilt is in fashion and compulsion after 2005.

The swelling roads have resulted in decrease of level of ground floors from road level. Several low lying areas have been created in Mumbai. Cave in are result of this practices only. We had many cave in cases reported in last eight months.
