Further, the number of houses built in any country could be another index. Due to the rapid growth of population and urbanization in India there has been a rapid growth in demand of housing, the speed thereof has not kept pace with the rapid growth of population and urbanization. As a result, the shortage of accommodation is increasing continuously, especially in urban areas. The traditional mode of construction for individual houses would be totally inadequate for mass housing construction industry in view of the rapid rate of construction. It is necessary to have innovative technologies capable of fast rate construction for undertaking mass housing works and are able to deliver good quality and durable structure in cost effective manner.

With the country’s agriculture sector having limited absorption capacity, majority of rural to urban migration is expected in search of employment opportunities and better standard of living. Constant increase in concentration of people in urban areas has resulted in an increase in the number of people living in slums and squatter settlements as the price of land and real estate are very high which the poor and economically weaker sections of the society cannot afford. It is evident that there is housing shortage looms in Urban India and a wide gap exists between the demand and supply of housing. According to a report submitted by a technical committee to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation (MHUPA), India’s urban housing shortage is estimated at nearly 18.78 million households in 2012. Besides those living in obsolescent houses, 80 percent of these households are living in congested houses and are in requirement of new houses.

Unlike other conventional materials, the rammed-earth wall will have less carbon footprint and is environmentally sustainable.
The problem of poverty is wide yet complicated. Poverty consists everywhere, both in the urban and rural area and many people are still left behind, thus this shows that the UN could not cover every single area in the world. To access into every single person on earth is not as simple as helping people in one village, especially when population growth keeps rising (U.S Census Bureau, 2015). As stated by Steven Edwards on behalf of the UN, he gives us some facts about the problem which came after the growth of population. He claimed that “with high world's population led to huge, local governments is difficult to provide the local implementation of a balanced life and help to solve the problem of poverty (2015)”.
