Abstract: Over a past few decades, there have been a wide ranges of alternatives available in the field of construction, especially with reference to manufacture of bricks. Further, there are some inventions like fly ash brick, concrete blocks etc. There are also researches using black cotton soil as a raw material in the manufacturing of bricks along with few admixtures to alter the properties of the black cotton soil. This research study describes the feasibility of using black cotton soil as a raw material with additional stabilizer in the brick production as partial replacement of clay in Indian context. The study has revealed that the bricks manufactured using this method have good quality with acceptable strength and further, they can be manufactured in a cost effective manner
