The need for decent, affordable housing rises along with urbanisation. One of the biggest issues in emerging nations like India is a lack of housing. All economic levels must have access to housing, but the poor and moderate income groups need special attention. Affordable, quick-to-market, cost-effective, long-lasting, and environmentally friendly new sustainable technologies must be adopted in order to provide affordable housing. This seminar explores cutting-edge, innovative technologies that may be used across the nation to reduce the cost of building homes and support the creation of widespread, affordable housing. Technologies like tunnel form, Sismo buildings, light gauge steel framed structures, precast sandwich panel technology, etc. are some of those that are covered. These technologies are evaluated according to a number of criteria, including their appropriateness for high-rise construction, local accessibility, affordability, energy efficacy, structural stability, quality, speed, and cost effectiveness. Also addressed are the technology' benefits and drawbacks. In order to offer low- and middle-income groups with cheap housing, the conference discusses potential obstacles to the adoption of these technologies in Indian cities as well as strategies for overcoming them. Fast-track building is very necessary for large-scale housing projects like slum redevelopment. The most advantageous alternative for building for this quick wall technique
