Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) is one of the advanced type of concrete which is widely used in structures were congested reinforcements are provided. Generic self compacting concrete is found not to be suitable in certain cases and required modification needed is done by several researches. Once such modified SCC is Light Weight Self Compacting Concrete (LWSCC), in this research an attempt is being mode to produce LWSCC using various aggregates such as Pumice stone, Vermiculites and Perlite in the presence of synthetic super plasticizers. Initial test is to test the quality of aggregate were done as per Indian Standard Codes and results obtained were used in mix design. Preliminary sampling was done to check the suitability of the selected aggregates in producing LWSCC and it’s found to be viable further studies will be done to obtain strength and impact behaviour of LWSCC using selected admixtures.
