Bihar-Nepal Earthquake of Aug The rather moderate sized (magnitude ) Bihar earthquake of Aug demonstrated clearly that the Indian Engineering profession is far from prepared for a larger earthquake. During the author's extensive travel within the areas affected by this earthquake, it became clearer that the engineering community should immediately initiate serious.

The coseismic slip during the Bihar–Nepal earthquake is estimated to be of the order of m from the estimated seismic moment (Molnar and Deng, ). For the Kangra earthquake, leveling data in Dehra Dun are consistent with 3–5 m of coseismic slip (Chander, ).

We may therefore assume a characteristic earthquake with 3–5 m.
