Needless to elaborate the harmful effects of the Expansive soil on the light-weight structures, as it is a very common problem faced by the Structural and Geotechnical engineers all over the world. In INDIA, the site having BlackCotton soil force the local engineers to think differently in order to find a way which can improve the ground condition very efficiently. One solution, which is not used worldwide, is the Electrokinetic Treatment which uses the principle of Electroosmosis, Electromigration and Electrocementation, and has been proved the best for fine grained soil. Till now, inadequate studies have been done to prove its efficiency in using it for the expansive soil. Apparently, there may be some reasons why the researchers don't consider this technique useful in such soils. This paper includes the whole and sole of this treatment reckoned from the past studies and its scope in implementation with Expansive soils. Experimental study, both in field and laboratory, followed by its analysis using available software packages, is required to decide the factors of this treatment influencing expansive soil.
