Housing shortage in urban India due to rising unaffordability makes it logical to consider alternative technologies for their application. It is targeted at those urban poor living close to bamboo growing region. The design thus evolved shall clearly indicate the cost reduction of the superstructure where steel reinforced concrete is replaced by bamboo reinforced concrete in structural elements. The author also have been studied for understanding the mechanical behavior of bamboo reinforced
