It is very common in India and Pakistan, that people usually use blocks for buildings, especially to build fences ( 4 deewari) and footpaths.
Land required for this business is minimum 1 kanal. If it is half acre, then it is best for this business. You don’t need any building to start this business, just a room or any readymade shed, just to store your cement and other tools. The main thing required is the floor. If it is not permanent, then you need to make it. If you have land, say 1 kanal, then you need to cover 15 marla permanent flooring, and if it is 4 kanal, then you need to cover 3 kanal. Either make it permanent with bricks, concrete, or with the blocks (created by your own). It is not necessary to do this at once, but gradually with time to time. The reason behind this, is only when the blocks are in the process of manufacturing, there is a risk that blocks sink into the mud, and mud will attach to it, making it a bad product. Concrete floor is best among all. To make a floor permanent, hardly cost would be around 3 lakh rupees on 3 kanal flooring and 1 lakh for 15 marla.
Raw material used for this business are cement, placer (rait), or silica sand, gravels, or chips, or crush etc, as per your requirement. Gravel of 500 muraba foot, will cost you around 9000 Rs. Cement 50 kg around 500 Rs, however its rate usually fluctuates. Sometimes it is higher, sometimes lower. You can make a contract with any cement company on daily, weekly or monthly basis as per your desires. These all upper mentioned raw material will be mixed together, in the ratio of 20% cement, and 80% other stuff. After this, a small amount of drinking water will be added just to make it wet, not more than that. So when it is compressed, cement will react with other stuffs and become a one solid thing. 400psi pressure is ideally given to it, as per very high tech plants which makes it very strong.
