29 Indian cities very vulnerable to earthquakes
Twenty-nine Indian cities and towns, including Delhi and capitals of nine states, fall under severe to very severe seismic zones, which mean they are highly vulnerable to earthquakes.
Most of these places are in the Himalayas. Delhi, Patna, Srinagar, Puducherry, Guwahati and Chandigarh are in the list of these states.
31 new earthquake centres will come up in the country by March next year. At present, there are 84 observatories. This is being done to detect and record earthquakes more accurately and identify signs of tremors.
