The simple answer is, yes. Maharashtra keen to use GFRG panel for projects.
Towards cheaper, mass-scale housing
The unique calcining process of Gypsum prevents over heating and maintains uniform quality of the putty and plaster base. The building, with electrical and sanitary fittings, will be ready on April 8 — just 29 days of construction after the foundation was completed.
According to the IIT researchers, tests conducted have shown that GFRG panels reinforced with concrete are also capable of resisting lateral loads caused by earthquakes. Our panels are strong, crack free and provide panel free surface with less joints. More Houses Per House.

The panels and its construction methodology help to reduce the construction time substantially and save in labour cost. The application panles our prefabricated Gypsum wall include, Domestic housing, Multi —storied construction, Roofing and compound walls.
Our panels are strong, crack free and provide crack free surface with less joints. The light weight characteristic of our panel helps to reduce the structural element cost including foundation. A reduction in amount of concrete used in turn reduces the total weight of the building.
