The special thing about these houses is that they will have net zero carbon and net zero water building. At the same time, this project is currently under construction on the IIT Bombay campus. These houses will have every facility
The most special thing about these houses will be that very little cement has been used during the construction of these houses, cement has been used only for laying the foundation of the house. The wall of the house has been constructed from agro-waste. Along with this, solar panels will also be installed for the use of electricity in these houses.
