The substantial network of the Indian sewer lines and drains were constructed during the colonial era and many others were added post independence. Nevertheless, growing urban populace, overloading of existing sewers and lack of maintenance have impacted the functioning and the very existence of these lines; in many cases the lines are choked or overflowing and in some cases, they have caved in leaving a huge crater on the road.
