New Delhi: In line with the aim of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs to certify over 1.06 lakh construction workers across the nation over the year under the NIPUN project, the National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO) has enrolled over 15,000 construction workers out of 32,000 workers as of February 15.

Notably, women account for more than 18.6 per cent of all enrolled workers.

NAREDCO, the apex body of the Indian real estate fraternity, was appointed as one of the implementing agencies by NSDC to oversee the successful execution of the NIPUN project for bridging skill gaps in construction workers engaged in the real estate sector that was started in June last year.

NAREDCO has been holding these training programmes across the country under the supervision of trained experts. Some prominent construction sites where the work is undertaken by NAREDCO include the prestigious CentralVista site, the Delhi Metro and Meerut RRTS construction sites, the sites of NBCC, sites of top developers like Hiranandani, Godrej, M3M, Tulip, Raunak and many others.

Also, the NIPUN skilling initiative of the ministry has been well appreciated by NAREDCO’s developer community, which has offered their construction sites for the skilling drive.
