An earthquake of magnitude 3.1 occurred on Sunday and its tremors were felt in the Delhi-NCR region. The earthquake had its epicentre nine km away from Haryana's Faridabad and at a depth of 10 km.
On Sunday October 15, Delhi-NCR experienced earthquake tremors around 4 pm. The incident has prompted authorities to await further details on the event. Around 4:08 pm, Faridabad in Haryana was shaken by an earthquake, registering a magnitude of 3.1 on the Richter Scale. This seismic activity was reported by the National Center for Seismology (NCS).
