Dear Purvi
           For this type of situation do  not take risk. Get proper soil investigation and know the soil bearing capacity and after that take foundation design from structural engineer.

Dear Ms. Purvi: Pile foundation would definitely be of help in your case. However, in continuation of Gupta Ji's suggestion, it would do much good if a soil study is done in the area, followed by acquiring the foundation drawing by a competent and experienced structural engineer.
