In this work, some geotechnical properties of soil in Atigre area , Maharashtra have been found out. Samples are collected from studying area. These soil samples were subjected to routine laboratory tests. The main tests include, determination of Atterberg limits, density, specific gravity of soil soilds, permeability etc. Plasticity index (>17) clay, hence soil is classified as high plastic and cohesive. Toughness index 0.33, flow index 80.89.These properties can be used by designer as a preliminary guideline for design.
