2What we doOur Vision, Purpose, MissionIndia has set its sights on becoming a 5 trillion economy by year 2024. As a first step inthis direction, Government of India appointed task force which firmed up plans for investingINR 111 lakh crores in infrastructure projects over next five year period. This developmentaugurs well for future prospects of the Indian construction industry.There is a phenomenal scope for advancing foundation construction practices in India toreach the global best level on technology and skill development fronts, by deploying modernequipment and good work practices. These advancements will mitigate severe time/costoverruns in the implementation of major infrastructure projects on account of recurringgeotechnical and foundation issues in Indian scenario. Improvements will add hugefinancial savings to the government/owners/contractors and others on major infrastructureprojects.DFII’s mission is to support the Indian foundation industry on a continuous and sustainedbasis in measured and measurable steps, to become very professional and to embrace newtechnologies for faster development of India.

Interesting case studies and paneldiscussion are presented to raise technical awareness and propel the state-of-practice infoundation design, construction, testing, contracting methods, and risk sharing in the Indiafoundation industryDEEP FOUNDATIONS INSTITUTE OF INDIA44/19 USHA STREET, DR SEETHAPATHY NAGARVELACHERY, CHENNAI, TAMIL NADU, INDIA, 600042dfiindiaoffice@gmail.com l www.dfi-india.org

3Current InitiativesCFA Pile Technology Implementation ProjectDFI of India, as a trial project, installed six numbers ofContinuous Flight Auger (CFA) piles and tested forvertical compression, tension and lateral capacitiesReports on design and construction, installation, andload testing are available for sharing with the industryplanning to adopt this technology.The trials were successful and a guideline manual isbeing finalized for the benefit of the Indian FoundationIndustry. It is expected that the speed of foundationconstruction may be increased to four fold using thistechnology.(visit http://www.dfi.org/commhome.asp?ICFA)DFI-CMRL (Chennai Metro Rail Ltd) InternationalGeo-Engineering Working GroupDFI and CMRL have established a collaborative working group of global experts whowill facilitate formulation and implementation of guidelines covering planning, design,contractual issues, equipment management, and construction testing aspects ofphase 2 of the project. This will mitigate time and cost overrun risks on account ofgeotechnical and foundation issues greatly which is common challenge in most of themetro rail projects.In 2018, a five-year MoU was signed between CMRL and DFII aimed at aligning thegoals of both organizations as they pertain to metro rail projects and specifically tothe geotechnical, soil condition and deep foundation scope of those projects.Together, CMRL and DFII will educate theindustry on best practices and encourage anongoing dialogue on critical issues thatpromote safety, quality and sustainability ofmetro projects. The success of this collaboration can be replicated in other metro ia.asp?alliances )DEEP FOUNDATIONS INSTITUTE OF INDIA44/19 USHA STREET, DR SEETHAPATHY NAGARVELACHERY, CHENNAI, TAMIL NADU, INDIA, 600042dfiindiaoffice@gmail.com l www.dfi-india.org
