Brand doesn't matter, go as per the grade only.

Hi Ashuu: For house construction, go for PPC 43 grade cement. Absolutely no need for 53 grade. PPC cement, containing fly-ash, gives you more time to work with wet cement as it has a longer setting time and gives more compressive strength with the passage of time when compared to a OPC cement. Brand is as per your budget, availability and choice. 
I hope it helps.
