Sir these are the isolated footings
These footing are provided where column distances are more.
These footing are provided where sbc of the soil is high.
Also it is easy to construct, and economical.

Interesting configuration - I can't say I've ever seen a column footing configured like this. I think Mehboob has touched upon how/why/where these might be useful - Situations where spread footings are desired (no deep foundations, like piles or caissons...), columns are needed, and the bearing capacity of the in-situ soil is high enough to carry the load. Very interesting....
