Cost Estimation for House Construction
At RAMTEJ Constructions, we have developed a special "Budget Estimation Calculation" which gives you an approximate budget needed for the construction of your house. 

General Guidelines:
It is a good strategy to know beforehand the requirement of space, probable cost and approximate quantities of critical materials. As a rule, the ratio of materials to labour to overheads is 60:30:10. The current cost of construction is Rs 600-900 per sq ft depending upon finishing items. 

Stages and rough percentage of total work
To give you an idea of the cost pattern for different stages, the cost is worked out for a 1000 sq ft house @ Rs 700/- per sq ft.
