The construction industry in India is one of the largest contributors to the GDP at the same time it is an unorganized sector and labour intensive Industry. The construction industry is subject to more risk and uncertainty than perhaps any other industry. Most of the participants experience risks in cost and time over runs and many times fail to meet quality standards and operational requirements. Therefore the need to increase the understanding of risk management (RM). This is an attempt to consider the current implementation thereof during the different construction project life cycle stages in the Indian Construction Industry; to report on the level of collaboration and communication between parties involved during the construction project life cycle stages in terms of risk; Risks and need for devising methodology for managing these risks. It is recommended that formal and informal training of general contractors and construction managers is essential for implementing such techniques or else it is wise to engage engineers who are equipped with better management techniques. This leads to improved profitability, reduced conflicts and on time / within budget completion of projects
