ABSTRACT:
A construction project is successful only if the target(s) is/are achieved as per schedule and following the baseline to the core. Any variations from these cause a delay and by which the project cannot be completed within a planned time. Also the delay results in expense to all the parties involved in the completion of a particular project. This often end up in clashes between parties, arbitration/ litigation and in certain cases can lead to the total abandonment of project. There are several factors attributed to the delay. These scenarios grab more attention in many construction projects. This is a common issue faced all over the world and India is no exception. This paper tries to identify the various factors attributing to delay of construction projects and their effects in Indian construction Industry. The research methodology includes literature review and questionnaire survey to identify and collect data. The data are analysed using SPSS software to know the factors which are majorly effects for delay. A questionnaire and personal interviews have formed the basis of this research. Factor analysis and regression modelling were used to examine the significance of the delay factors. The construction delays were grouped under seven major factors and each of these major factors are explored with sub factors under them. Factor analysis will be carried out to identify the influence of the delay factors. These findings will be used to overcome the delays in Indian construction industry in controlling the time overrun and cost overrun in construction projects.
