No Dig Show 2018 - Advancing Trenchless Standardization

No Dig Show 2017

The journey of Trenchless Standardisation, that started in India in 2007, has seen development of codes of practice of five most popular Trenchless techniques. In the year 2017, first revision of four codes, and second revision of one code has also been released. These codes provide appropriate inputs for application of such standardized techniques. To advance this process of standardisation, IndSTT is hosting the No Dig India Show 2018.

In addition to publishing codes, over the same period, IndSTT has published commercial framework that includes contract conditions and schedule of rates, several guidelines for project planning, execution, and conclusion. With the introduction of newer codes, amplification of current conditions becomes imperative as that would help in maximizing the benefits of new editions. IndSTT intends to release new codes in line with directions of code committee, and revised editions of current framework and guidelines.


Main objectives of NDIS 2018 include following:

  • Releasing the new approved techniques list with respective deliverables & related guidelines

  • Releasing the codes of Practice suiting Indian conditions for Subsurface Utility Engineering, and some of the remaining Trenchless Techniques as approved by the Code Committee.

  • Revising & releasing commercial framework for trenchless applications.

  • Revising & releasing trenchless project linked guidelines

  • Providing inputs about newer trenchless construction methodologies to stakeholders.

  • Drawing a road map for conducting City Level Trenchless events to assist ingress of Trenchless Technology in Government missions in association with city based stakeholders.
