GRIHA (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment) India's national rating system for sustainable habitats.

It is an indigenous system designed and developed by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy in collaboration with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).

ADARSH has trained over 10,000 professionals, students, and government officials in various capacities on green habitats in the Indian context.

According to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) both CREDAI and ADARSH would jointly approach municipal bodies to come up with incentives for green buildings and accept GRIHA as the reference standard for determining the incentives.



The Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has already set an example by announcing mandatory compliance of their future government projects with GRIHA, and soon other municipal bodies are also expected to join the movement.

Mr Lalit Kumar Jain, National President CREDAI said this understanding will facilitate green habitats in the country and ensure quality and knowledge sharing.

ADARSH is an independent society formed by the MNRE and TERI to develop and implement GRIHA. It is responsible for registration of projects with GRIHA, advocacy and awareness generation on sustainable habitats in the Indian context.
