This research paper deals about the experimental study on the stabilization of soil using industrial wastes. Marble dust is used for the stabilisation of soil. Marble dust is formed from cutting and polishing of marble stone. It is one of the industry generated waste material. Marble dust contains high amount of calcium, silica, alumina which aids in the stabilization of the soil. Marble dust is added in varying percentages (3,6,9,12,15%) along with curing periods of (3,7,14) days to the soil sample. Basic properties of soil like Atterberg limits, compaction characteristics and strength characteristics were determined.
