Abstract

Construction delays can be defined as the late completion of works compared to the planned schedule or contract schedule. Construction delays can be minimized only when their causes are identified. The objective of this study is to identify the major causes of construction delays in India; in particular the Manipal Town. This study was carried out based on literature review and a questionnaire survey. The questionnaire was designed based on forty-two factors of delays under six distinct categories targeting the contractors, clients and consultants. The Likert's scale offive ordinal measures was used in this survey. The level of importance of each factor of delays was established by computing Relative Importance Indices (RII).The analysis was made using Microsoft Excel. The major cause of delay out of 42 causes is identified as the category of Owner Related Factors wh ich was found to be due to delay in payments (RII-O.8l2).
