There are many type of retaining wall but cantilever wall is commonly used because of its economical benefits. Shelves are the new concept in retaining wall, it is more effective and economical when soil pressure is high and height of wall is greater. This paper is conduct two type of model which is analysis by manual and by STAAD PRO. 1) Model 1: R.C.C
