According to the National Center for Seismology, Delhi-NCR has three fault lines. Where there is a fault line, there is an earthquake epicenter. Delhi-NCR has Delhi-Moradabad Fault Line, Mathura Fault Line and Sohna Fault Line under ground.
According to geologists, the real cause of the earthquake is a sharp movement in tectonical plates. Apart from this, earthquakes also occur due to meteor impact and volcanic eruptions, mine testing and nuclear testing. Earthquake intensity is measured on the Richter scale. An earthquake of magnitude 2.0 or 3.0 is mild on this scale, while a magnitude of 6 means a powerful earthquake.
