Mr Khanna claimed that by increasing ceiling and wall insulation levels, making windows more energy efficient, using solar power and energy efficient lights with power sensor which automatically switch off, people can develop a culture of conservation.

''Use of green technologies such as recycling of used water for gardening and flushing should be made mandatory,'' he added.

Around 400 consulting engineers, architects, developers and project managers attended the seminar organised by Indian Buildings Congress (IBC).
