In October, a study revealed that the recent earthquakes in parts of India, though of small magnitudes occurred due to foreshocks and swarms. A top official of the Geological Survey of India (GSI) warned that frequent tremors were a matter of concern in the subcontinent, where several areas are prone to major seismic activities.
