List of 12 Tallest Buildings in India in 2024

Reach for the sky! The bigger the better! Onwards and upward! Humankind’s desire to aim higher and higher can clearly be seen in our strides in architecture and structural engineering in the last century. Buildings tower thousands of feet in the skies, each competing for landmark status.

In India, the tallest buildings you will find are in the biggest cities as skyscrapers are usually linked to the development of a place. A skyscraper is defined at a building that is 492 feet (150 meters) or higher. It should have at least 40 floors. Mumbai, quite predictably has the most number of skyscrapers in India, with more than 70 under its belt. It’s no surprise then that this bustling city is home to a great many buildings featured in the list below.

Here are the tallest buildings in India that are fully constructed and habitable.
