The demerits of plain concrete are its lesser tensile strength, not significant ductility and poor resistance to cracking. Due to propagation of internal micro cracks in plain concrete causes decrease in tensile strength, hence leads concrete to brittle fracture. Addition of fibres behaves like crack arrester and enhances the dynamic properties of concrete. In India natural fibres such as bamboo, coir, jute, sisal, pineapple, banana, ramie etc are high available. Jute is a useful natural fibre for concrete reinforcement due to its easy availability and low cost. In this research, the experiments related to Jute fibre reinforced concrete (JFRC) are done by taking different fibre percentage and the compressive strength and modulus of rapture value observed. This JFRC can replace plain concrete and wood in many cases for example in door and window panels, inclined roof slabs, partition walls etc
