The black cotton soil which derived from Bessel rock of malwa region of often find not suitable for infrastructure projects such as highways ,railways, water reservoir ,reclamation etc,due to it's high plasticity and expansive nature. Extensive laboratory and field trials having carried out by various researchers and have shown promising results for application of such expensive soil after stabilization with additives such as sand,silt,lime and fly ash etc as fly ash is freely available in the

The present paper describes a study carried out to check the improvement in the in the properties of black cotton soil with edition of the fly ash in varying percentages to form a homogenous mass of a required physical properties. The paper describes a methodology adopted for placing the materialas in layers of required thickness.
