Covid-19: Credai-Maharashtra to provide ration to construction workers


Developers’ body Credai-Maharashtra will provide one-month ration to construction workers staying at sites across Maharashtra.

“With 3,000 Credai members in the state and another 1,000 developers registered under another body in Mumbai, small allowances and ration will be provided for a month at least to construction workers,” State Credai president Rajiv Parikh said.

In its letter to all members across India, Credai urged developers to take care of their workers and ensure their health check-ups well.

It is estimated that nearly 30% construction workers were not reporting to project sites owing to fear of infection and contractors are also not keen on pushing them. According to Credai, there are around 20,000 ongoing projects across the country, which involves a workforce of about 8.5 million.

Pune Credai Metro president Suhas Merchant, in his note, said they would be reaching out to workers to provide all the assistance in the Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad areas. “ We will provide essential grocery items absolutely free of cost to these workers. We have earmarked Rs25 lakh for this exercise and close to 10,000 workers at 200 construction sites will benefit from it,” Merchant said.

Activist Nitin Pawar, however, said with the Covid-19 scare not to get over in a month, the builders’ body should work out a scheme to ensure that the construction workers do not suffer.

A construction worker complained of “not enough facilities” at his work site.
