CREDAI Announces Free Vaccination Drive for 2.5 Cr Construction Workers Across India

Construction sector is second to agri in terms of number of people employed.

Real estate developers are all set to dole out free Covid-19 vaccination for up to 2.5 crore construction site labourers across the country. In terms of number of people employed, the building construction sector is considered the second biggest sector in India, after agriculture.

The announcement was made Tuesday afternoon by Harsh Vardhan Patodia, the new national president of the Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Association of India (CREDAI), the apex body of real estate developers in the country. More than 13,000 real estate developers across 21 states are members of this organisation.

Right after the announcement of him being the next president, Patodia announced the free vaccination drive for 2.5 crore construction workers at the sites of member developers across India. Through this vaccination drive, CREDAI aims at accelerating government’s mission of free vaccination to the needy population at the earliest and further help in restraining the spread of the coronavirus, he said.

The vaccines are to be provided in strict accordance with all the government-approved protocols. However, details of the expected time frame to complete vaccinating 2.5 crore workers, the logistics, whether the organisation will bear the cost or the members directly, etc were not known at the moment.

Patodia, who is also the managing director of Kolkata-based real estate firm Unimark Group, replaces Satish Magar, whose term as the president of CREDAI ends tomorrow. Magar moves on to the post of chairman for the upcoming financial year.

“With the current challenges that the sector is facing, I will focus on driving efforts to revive the real estate sector and provide a stimulus to boost the business environment,” Patodia said, adding, “We will also further our commitment to skill development, green buildings and labour welfare.”
