Use of geo-synthetics.
While geo-synthetics have been used in the Western countries from the late 1970s onwards, in India, geo-synthetics started being used from the early 1990s. Since then, geo-synthetic usage has slowly spread to form an integral part of the country’s infrastructure fabric.
In the year 1985, Central Board of Irrigation & Power (CBIP), as part of its technology forecasting activities, identified geosynthetic as an important area relevant to India’s need for infrastructure development. In the year 1992, CBIP established the Committee for International Geosynthetics Society (India), which also acts as Indian Chapter of International Geosynthetics Society (IGS). The occasion also marks CBIP completing 30 years of its service to the Geosynthetics Community.
