This research paper presents study of Modern construction methods (MCM) in India in terms of adaptation in construction sector. It analyses the various factors like; advantages, disadvantages along with strategies to modern construction methods in India. MCM has several benefits over conventional construction method which are analyzed and ranked by using the Relative Importance Index (RII). The study investigates the various parameters of MCM- cost, quality, time, risks. The study also analyzed the various forms of MCM adopted in India construction sectors. The current study is a quantitative one in which a survey was used to collect data. This method was chosen because quantitative analyses offers quantifiable data in a numerical format that can be used to generalize research results using statistics. Workers in the construction industry were chosen from a variety of registered construction firms and data was collected using a standardized questionnaire. Since the study's aim was to look into the efficiency and speed of modern construction methods in the construction industry, this method was chosen. Sub-assemblies and components were the most adopted form of modern construction methods with 51% respondents claiming to have used them in construction projects. The results of RII shows that there is higher level of continuity in terms of standards and efficiency in adopting modern construction methods and reduction in overall project completion time. High initial capital cost and lack of skilled labours have been found as the barriers of MCM. Communication between key parties and allowing more time for design phase are the effective strategies in adopting the modern construction methods. This research will contribute a lot to the domain and will promote MCM in India.
