Construction Projects are the one which is associated with the combination of various activities, which requires a contribution from various parties. Hence there is a greater probability of the occurrence of delays in the construction. This delays in completion of construction projects can be a major problem for contractor companies leading to costly disputes and adverse relationships amongst project participants. so, by this report to explain the various factors leading to delay that is the causes of delay and their impacts on different construction projects. Because every project is unique in its perspective, although every project has its individual causes for the delay and the respective impacts like time overrun and cost overrun. The aim of this paper is to identify the causes of delay factors on India construction projects and analysing these factors with the relative important index (RII) and Analytical Network Process (ANP). For this purpose, 70 different delays factors were identified and categorized into 7 major groups through detailed literature review and the help of case study. A questionnaire survey was carried out targeting 60 we received 45 respondents. Based on this response the relative importance and ranking of these delay factors were analyzed by RII and ANP. According to these results the factors and groups contributing the most to delays and their impacts were discussed and some suggestions were made to minimize and control delays in construction projects.
