Expansive soils are causing number of damages to the structures particularly light buildings and pavements compare to other natural hazards like earthquake, floods, etc. Thus, worldwide these soils are considered to be problematic soils and pose several challenges for engineers. So, as to utilize these soils in an effective way, proper treatment to the soil is required. With the same intention, an attempt is made to modify engineering properties of black cotton soils from Nagpur region, Maharashtra, India by using RBI Grade 81 and sodium silicate. Atterberg’s limit, Compaction, California Bearing Ratio (C.B.R.), Unconfined Compressive Strength (U.C.S.) tests were carried out on the samples of soil and soil with stabilizers. Curing of samples is done for 7 days, 14 days and 28 days. RBI Grade 81 added to the soil in dry state in percentage (by weight) varying from 2% to 6% and sodium silicate 3% to 6% in solution (molar concentration). Comparisons of these two admixtures are done on the basis of test results obtained
