How much does it cost to build a house in India?

This is a bit dodgy.
Most people own their own land. Do they?
If they do, one could make a house at around Rs 1000 per sq. feet. (amendment on 23 March, 2012, in four years time, prices have gone up by 50 percent. Now it will cost you Rs 1,500 per sq feet.  So, add 50 per cent to prices shown here under)
