For construction of semi-basement building, you should clear the earth 6 feet deep from ground level. Then start the process of foundation and other components as usual. For basement side walls treatment, you can click on the link given below for help.

For the cost of the basement one should calculate the items required for the basement, according to the need and specifications used in construction of basement. It can be calculated with the help of cost estimator in the website gharexpert.com. Generally, the rate for construction of basement is approximately Rs. 400 per Sq ft to Rs. 450 Sq ft.

Is it a good idea to construct basement in India? I would think flooded basement would be common in India (with the amount of rainfall India gets). Will the foundation hold?(due to shifting ground)

In Gujarat, I have rarely seen people constructing basement in their house. I have heard person making a wonderful house with basement type parking. Only to see it flooded during rainy season. Now he is trying to sell the the house.
