The inferno at a London residential building that killed 79 people last week has raised concerns for architects and builders in India. One of the main reasons identified by experts for the 24-storey Grenfell Tower going up in flames in a matter of hours was the cladding or material coating used on the structure of the building. This cladding technology, at one third the cost of a stone tile, is widely used in buildings in Indian cities too.
