Topic: Types of Soil

Sir,
What are the types of soil in India as regards building works?

In our area, they have classified soil type as
A 
Most sand and rock sites, with little or no ground movement
S 
Slightly reactive clay sites, with only slight ground  movement
M 
Moderately reactive clay or silt sites which can experience moderate movement
H 
Highly reactive clay sites, which can experience high ground movement
E 
Extremely reactive sites,
P 
Soft site, which includes soft soils, such as soft clay or silt

It will be good if someone can compare and contrast Indian soil types with the above.
Thanks, Gerard
