Recently we see a increasing trend of providing high rise building in urban areas of our subcontinent .This trend has been initialized by several factors like growth in population,migration of people from rural to urban areas in search of employment or means for livelyhood.Also added is the trend to settle near areas of importance,proximity to transport system stations,concentration of housing units in the locality,availability of ground water,power, and also a peaceful environment to live in satisfying the basic needs .The spurt of vertical planning units in different parts of the country has been accelerated by the availability of improved construction methodologies and availability of skilled labour. The growth in the number of multistoreyed buildings has its own effects on the urban environment in physical,social and economic aspects .Also the multistoreyed buildings effect the geographic situations in its immediate vicinity thus making the issue complicated.Though construction of multistoreyed buildings have its own detrimental effects, the trend of setting up multiplexes have been continuing due to the tremendous demand for available land space in urban localhoods.This paper highlights some of the causes of development multilevel dwellings in a developing nation like India,along with its effects.
