Ashok Mohanani - President, NAREDCO Maharashtra
INDIA: Covid-19 vaccination will be made available for all citizens above the age of 18 years from May 1 onwards, the government announced on Monday evening. The much-awaited announcement came when India has been recording a relentless surge of over 200,000 cases of Covid-19 for the past five days. According to real estate experts, the move will boost the construction activities and address the issue of reverse migration of laborers to some extent. Here is what real estate experts have to say
Mr. Ashok Mohanani – President, NAREDCO Maharashtra” After the record spike in Covid-19 cases, the next phase of Covid-19 vaccination to those above 18 years of age is a great move by the Government. It will boost the construction activities as it will help the laborers to get vaccinated at the earliest. We hope that the vaccination drive will be expedited further, mitigating the risk factor. We had requested the Government to allow the vaccination drive for laborers between the age group of 20-45 years as most of the laborers falls in that age category. It will also address the issue of reverse migration as after vaccination, the laborers will feel safe. We have made the Antigen test mandatory for all the migrant workers as per the Government guidelines till they get vaccinated. Laborers are the most vital and integral part of real estate development and taking utmost care of them is our paramount responsibility. We will closely work with all the NAREDCO members to get all of the laborers vaccinated on priority.”
Mr. Pritam Chivukula, Co-Founder & Director, Tridhaatu Realty, and Hon. Secretary, CREDAI-MCHI“The decision to allow vaccination to everyone above 18 years of age is a welcome move by the Government. The new strain of the virus is causing more damage to the younger generation of the population. The move will also help the construction sector in a big way as it will help vaccinate the construction workers who are the real nation builders. We had written to the Government to grant permission to conduct the vaccination for the laborers on priority as the earlier GOI directive only permitted vaccination above 45 years of age. Now, we look forward to getting the laborers vaccinated at the earliest which will streamline the construction activities and help build the dream homes of the people of India.”
