When will the straw house constructions of India take off?
The straw house was introduced to India by Sri Lanka, a small, landlocked country in East Africa.
Sri Lanka’s colonial regime built the country’s first straw house on the outskirts of Mango in the 1950s, but it took more than 30 years for the straw houses to be used in residential projects in India.
While Sri Lanka has a straw house, it is in a different place from India’s.
India has no formal straw house regulations.
There is no legal framework in India to govern straw house use.
The country’s central government, however, has issued guidelines to all its civil servants to follow, and a few states have passed laws and regulations.
In recent years, India’s straw houses have started appearing in the commercial sector, including in hotels, shopping malls and other tourist attractions.
Some of the big names in the industry have been promoting straw houses as the cheapest, easiest way to build a straw home.
A straw house is a wooden frame that is stacked on a concrete foundation and then covered with a polystyrene membrane.
The polystyrenes hold the structure together.
The structure is constructed from the ground up, usually using straw and cardboard or bamboo.
The first straw houses were built in the 1930s in the city of Pune, India.
The first one was erected in Mango, a suburb of Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka, which is not a signatory to the International Convention for the Protection of New and Improved Housing, started building straw houses in 1949, when the country was ruled by the British.
The British wanted to make a quick profit from the country.
The British built about 1,500 straw houses per year and had a monopoly on building them, said Arvind Gopalakrishnan, an engineer and a professor of civil engineering at Pune University.
“They used to pay Rs 1,000 per square foot for each structure, which made them very attractive,” he said.
India’s straw house design began as a way to save money.
In India, most people can’t afford the cost of a straw roof, said Sushil Dixit, a civil engineer and the director of the Indian Institute of Planning.
But straw houses are a cheaper way of making a house because they are cheaper to build than concrete.
A straw house can be made with a minimum of five tons of bricks and concrete, Dixits said.
“The construction cost of straw houses is less than the cost to build concrete structures,” he added.
Mango is one of the most densely populated cities in India and the straws are used in more than 20% of the buildings in the capital, New Delhi.
Unlike in Sri Lanka and other countries that use straws to build houses, in India they are a common construction material.
Most straw houses come from the United Kingdom, which started using the material in the mid-19th century.
Many other countries, including the United States, the United Arab Emirates, the Philippines, Australia and the United Republic of Tanzania use straw as a construction material, according to the United Nations.
The British also built the first straw homes in India’s colonial period.
It was a major logistical and economic burden for the British to transport the materials, and it is unclear whether the British ever exported the materials.
But the straw buildings have been used by the Indian government in many projects, including road and bridge projects.
A survey by the Ministry of New Buildings and Urban Development (MNBUU) found that the straw building industry grew by almost 8.5% between 2004 and 2014.
In the same period, the straw construction industry grew more than 16% in India, according the survey.
“The straw building has been used for over 200 projects in New Delhi alone,” said Gopalachandra Muralidharan, a consultant at the company that built the new straw house in Mangere, Maharashtra, about 70 kilometers from Mumbai.
“Sri Lankan straw houses and Indian straw buildings are both very expensive and the supply chains are not seamless.
But these are very good jobs for a young man like me.”
