Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is on average a new kind of high performance concrete that sees the increase the workability and rate of flow with the addition of a superplasticiser. By its very nature, SCC achieves compaction by means of its own weight into the every part of the mould or formwork without segregation of coarse aggregation. Mechanical properties of hardened SCC are considered to be the same as those of OPC concrete of the same W/B (water-to-binder ratio). SCC usually produces greater high-performance properties such as nigh strength and durability. Improved working environment, faster construction, less remedial work, and increasing overall productivity are the benefits to the construction industry from the utilization of self-compacting. Rice husk is one of the bulky wastes which are abundantly available everywhere in the world at no cost. Microwave burning to produce MIRHA will convert it into much value for use in concrete as a partial cement replacement material at very low cost. During to the controlled process of burning, emission of greenhouse gases to the environment is eliminated. The study of this report is to evaluate the tensile and compressive strengths of the Self-compacting concrete with the incorporation of Microwave Incinerated Rice Husk Ash (MIRHA) and Pulverized Fly Ash (PFA). Due to the varying strength of concrete with the incorporation of RHA and PFA, the compressive strength will be observed in 3,7,28 and 90 days. The tensile strength and modulus of elasticity are to be evaluated to evaluate the elastic behaviour of SCC
