Sustainability is a crucial issue since the last decade as the building sector, directly or indirectly cause a considerable portion of the annual environmental deterioration. Due to increase in houses’ demand, leading to consumption of more resources, energy and raw materials which are directly responsible for the rise in carbon content in air and which are harmful to human health and environment. To overcome these various environmental impacts, we need to build with more sustainable materials which will reduce the impacts on environment. Design of a building is essential and it becomes crucial when we talk about affordable housing.  India needs not only affordable housing, but also homes that are energy efficient and designed using sustainable techniques. The green buildings design should thus begin with the use and selection of eco-friendly materials with related or better features than traditional building materials.  The paper aims at sustainable development in affordable high-rise buildings with fast track techniques and procedures to reduce overall time and cost of the project.
