Concrete is effectively used for construction work on a large scale, as it has basic characteristics such as high compressive strength, high flexural strength, tensile strength, durability. Concrete may get easily hardened as it required a proper water cement ratio. The durability, workability, and compressive strength of the concrete are the focused properties if the quality of the construction is taken into view. The concrete gets hardened due to the exothermic process that takes place due to the reaction between water and ingredients in the concrete mix. As the concrete age grows strength also increases. The cost of the cement is touching the sky every passing day. So, it is essential to replace the cement partially also an application of cement is not eco friendly and harms the environment during the manufacturing of cement. This review paper expressed the significance of jaggery on strength behavior of a new concrete composition. Experimentation carried out for determining strength properties of a new concrete for M30 grade nominal concrete using jaggery as admixture. Based on previous study, jaggery is an unrefined sugar product and it is easily available market the main function of jaggery is to increase the initial setting time of concrete and it also influencing the properties of concrete. Preferably this type of admixture is used in different construction sites like deep foundations, piers and long piles. Six different percentages of admixture was chosen into the experimentation at 0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.25, 0.50 and 0.75 by weight of cement, finally it is accomplished that the workability of concrete is being superior with jiggery as admixture.
