Topic: M-Sand for Plastering

Construction for G+3 floors  is in progress and using the Robo sand & stone dust for brick work/mold.
Due to the high cost & non availability of river sand, planning to use, M sand for plastering.

Could you please help me to know the pros & cons of M sand in Plastering?
Also, what would be better alternative than the river sand in vitrified tiles laying work?

Thank you very much in advance!!

Dear  
        You can use M sand for plastering. See that there should minimum silt i.e the silt should be less than 4%. If this problem of silt exist than wash the sand with water for removing the silt.
