Maybe there is a height restriction, but for the safety issue ur absolutely right.

You answered it.

Another reason developers prefer (space permitting, of course) long buildings over skyscrapers is that they can avoid the mandatory space that they would need to leave between adjoining towers.

“This way, they can make full use of the FSI (floor space index) available,” said architect Mukesh Mehta.

i actually quiet like this idea - meaning that if the tower curves (bends)
as well as the balconies then at least there is a main theme here!

the communist-era blocks were just blocks that were joined to save building double walls (yep, that was the whole idea of it! saving a few bricks!) so
I think here its to save space - why not join buildings and have a nice big park next to them, then separate tall buildings which shadow all around them with scattered open space?

So in all with india's population this is probably a must.
