Some of the largest earthquakes of the world have occurred in India and the earthquake engineering developments in the country started rather early. After the 1897 Assam earthquake a New earthquake resistant type of housing was developed which is still prevalent in the north-east India. The Baluchistan earthquakes of 1930’s led to innovative earthquake resistant constructions And to the development of first seismic zone map. The institutional development started in the late 1950’s and earthquake engineering concepts have been applied to numerous major projects in high Seismic regions in the country. Extensive damage during several moderate earthquakes in recent years indicates that despite such early gains, earthquake risk in the country has been increasing alarmingly. Most buildings even in high seismic regions of the country continue to be built without appropriate earthquake resistant features. At the higher end of earthquake technology, the gap between state-of-the-practice of earthquake...
