Construction work restarts at over 100 projects in NCR

Construction groups have received permission to restart work in the National Capital Region, after getting permission from local authorities and fulfilling government mandated conditions

Real estate developers have restarted construction work at over 100 projects in the National Capital Region, after getting permission from local authorities and fulfilling government mandated conditions that include sharing worker details and making provisions for isolation rooms and doctors at sites.

The developers are also taking precautions to protect workers from Covid-19 infection. “We have hand sanitisers in every office entrance while manual spray sanitisers and portable hand sanitisers are being used by all contractors to sanitise machines, tools and metallic parts. Even the operators and helpers are using rubber hand gloves sanitised before and after completion of job,” said Pradeep Aggarwal, the chairman of Gurgaon-based Signature Global Group.

The group has received permission to restart work at seven projects in Gurgaon and one in Karnal. “We have prepared a video message and detailed standard operating procedures are in place,” said the chairman of Noida-based Supertech group, RK Arora. It has got approvals for projects in Noida and Gurgaon. The Delhi-based Raheja group has started work on Kathputli colony, an in-situ project with the Delhi Development Authority.

“Work has started on full scale and we are following all protocols of safety and distancing. Holding back labour is certainly a challenge as everyone wants to be with his family. We are looking at absorbing more manpower from within Delhi and have requested for transfer of skilled workers languishing in shelter camps,” chairman Navin Raheja said.

The companies have imposed a ban on gutka, pan masala, pan and any form of tobacco at their sites to maintain hygiene.
