At Present Water is the most essential material in the modern era. In general, Curing of concrete is retaining moisture in the concrete for the period of early ages precisely within 28 days of placing concrete, to improve anticipated properties. Appropriate curing of concrete is crucial to obtain extreme durability, especially if the concrete is exposed to serve conditions where the surface will be imperiled to excessive wear, assertive solutions, and severe environmental circumstances. Poor curing practices adversely affect the desirable properties of concrete which constitutes a major influence on the permeability of a given concrete.Unpredicted shrinkage and temperature cracks be able to diminish the strength, durability and serviceability properties of the concrete. The surface zone will be critically damaged by increased permeability expected to poor curing. The improvement of shrinkage in concrete is proportionate to the rate of moisture loss in concrete. When concrete is correctly cured, water preserved in concrete would facilitate continuous hydration and enhancement of enough compressive and tensile strength to withstand contraction stresses. The incessant development of strength reduces shrinkage and initial cracks or micro-cracks. As a part of this study, SCMs like Flyash (FA), Ground Granulated furnace Slag (GGBS), Silica Fume (SF). Concrete may be a mixture of cement, aggregates and water with / without suitable admixtures with self-curing agents and various proportions, which resulted in the early strength to reduce the autogenous shrinkage and increase in durability.
