Dear Jagminder
        Brick wall is better in the house than RCC wall, in RCC wall face difficulty in finishing, in electrical and water supply fittings.
Rcc wall is much costlier than brick wall for same thickness it is 3.5 time costlier.

Post subject: rcc wall

Dear Gupta ji,
I wish to construct a rain water harvesting underground tank. The size would be approx 10'*5'*5'. What would be better- solid rcc wall or brick wall. The cost of brick is around 7/- per pc. In rcc I will not need plastering and tiling.  Kindly advice on the cost part in both cases. Thanks in advance.
