Topic: What should be the floor concrete thickness after filling the foundation using quarry slurry?

I have filled the rubble foundation using quarry slurry which is of low cost but not strong/dense as earth filling. So, what is the safest thickness of floor concreting above it? Should I use steel bars as reinforcement in floor concreting?

Dear Vinu,
          Lay 4'' thick cement concrete 1;8;16 on the area which is filled by query dust. Then lay another layer of 3'' cement concrete 1;4;8 in whole the room' area under the floor.
