    The question is technical and before reading your post, i had never thought of knowing what would a basement cost me. By not making basements, we waste a huge part of the land we own. I am also interested in knowing the construction cost of a basement that covers the entire area of the house,

      Only the basement construction cost depends on the covered area.like you mentioned in your previous post that covered area for basement is 1200 sqft so just for argument sake its dimensions are 30 x 40.
      You will require 2 tons for the base of the basement and for the concreate walls another 4 tons for the walls and an extra 2.5 tons for the roof (lanter)This is your steel estimate give or take maximum 0.5 tons.total steel required for the basement is 8.5 tons.(Rs78,000 per ton) 800 to 1000 cement bags
      gravel and sand is around 2 to 4 trucks each. Labor rate is around 300 to 350 per sqft feet if its just the basement.

        The steel estimate is on the basis of 6 inch by 6 inch ok for the roof and ground but a bit too much for the walls of the basement.but it will only add strenght to the basement .
        And if the the plot is of solid ground than one base is enough otherwise you will need to put another set of steel for the strenght.(filling walla plot but normally farm houses are of solid ground)

            The steel it self is for 663,000
            1000 cement @ 500per bag = 500,000
            sand and gravel = 120,000 (estimated)
            Labor rate @ 350 = 360,000 covered area 1200 sqft

            total = 164,3000 for the basement which i think is very costly but depending on the location of the plot it can very well pay off if its for selling purpose.For residential its always good to have a basement.depending you dont have bathrooms in it.

                    For Ground Floor, It depends upon the location of your plot, it will vary between 1100 to 1200 for the covered area of your plot. Say, if your plot area is 4000 sft and you cover around 3200 sft then, it will cost you 3200 x 1100 (or 1200) whatever will be applied.

                    This cost is only for the grey structure covered area, boundary wall, gate installation, parapet walls and septic tank will be charged separately.

                    As for as your interior work is concerned, It is always better to comeup with your ideas because this cost varies alot and cannot be calculated like this. E.g If you ask for Marble that cost 150 per sqft or you ask for marble that cost 300/sft, different woods cost with big differences and all interior depends upon your choices , so you can render services of different contractors there, whoever is feasible appoint that, or ask the same contractor to do particular job at the market rate that you got form the market.

                    If still have queries then please do not hesitate to contact me. I would love to share all the aspects of the project.

                    KInd regards
