7 Flooring 6%
8 Wood-work, i.e., Joinery, doors, and windows 13%
9 Internal finishes 6%
10 External finishes 5%
11 Water supply 5%
12 Sanitary work 5%
13 Electrification 5%
Total 100%

Above table give me basic detail for Basic / Ruf / Lumsum percentage particular cost. This percentage calculation converts into per sqft how much cost requirement as follow table.
