Presently the exhaustion of natural aggregates has been a significant issue in the development area from which the pavement engineering and construction portion can't be avoided. Given the pavement construction practices, the total interest is colossal to such an extent that blasting, quarrying, crushing and transportation exercises are devouring a ton of energies, yet additionally, the total materials are exhausting quick and are hard to find. In the current pavement construction and engineering practices, the lack of natural raw materials and environmental degradation has led to the use of waste materials in construction practices. The current study is focused on Ceramic Waste and Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) mixed Granular Sub base (GSB) in flexible pavements. For this study, a series of experiments were performed to find out the Maximum Dry Density, Optimum Moisture Content, California Bearing Ratio (CBR), and Permeability values at different Proportions of Ceramic Waste and Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) mixed with natural aggregate. Besides this, experiments like Specific Gravity, Water Absorption, Aggregate Impact Value, and Bitumen Extraction Test were also conducted. The Granular Sub base (GSB) mix was prepared as per the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MORTH) grading. Through the experiments performed it was concluded that though there is a slight decrease in values of Maximum Dry Density, California Bearing Ratio (CBR), and Permeability with an increase in the ceramic waste and RAP content but it can be used in (Granular Sub base) GSB as the California Bearing Ratio (CBR) values are above permissible limits i.e. 30%(for traffic volume>2msa) and 20%(for traffic volume
