  In the present day sustainability has become the latest trend and environment-friendly and economic feasible solution to any problem is gaining popularity in all realms. Soil is a major component responsible for the functioning of the ecosystem as it houses abundant organic components, nutrients and even acts as a habitat for many living organisms. It is also the medium of plant growth. From the engineering point of view, soil acts as a base for load dissipation either through the foundation or as a subgrade under the pavement. But in some areas, the soil doesn’t satisfy the strength or stability criteria required for use as an engineering material. It might be too weak having a low bearing capacity and shear strength, it might be prone to wind or water erosion, it might have too low or too high permeability and compressibility or it might even be prone to liquefaction under dynamic loads. Such a situation demands and calls for soil stabilization and ground improvement.
