The recent Assam Earthquake has been previewed in the context of the recent seismicity pertaining to Kopili Fault of northeast India. Kopili fault of northeast India is known for its active seismicity. The ground motion parameters in the context of peak ground acceleration, peak ground velocity and peak spectral acceleration stand out for their implications. Considering the strong magnitude of the event, there is imminent need for earthquake resilient buildings as well as hazard mitigation strategies in order to tackle post-earthquake scenarios.
