PM’s intervention to fastrack infra, housing projects – BAI
Builders Association of India sought Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi’s intervention to institutionalise their demands to fast track his flagship infrastructure and housing projects.
BAI National President Mr HN Vijaya Raghava Reddy said that “We have decided to meet the Prime Minister and request him to institutionalise our demands and brief him of the sustainable advantage it would create towards India’s development and equally in fast tracking his flagship infrastructure and housing projects.”
The decision was taken at the 28th All India Builders Convention here that passed a resolution, asking the centre to release its land banks for its ‘Housing For All by 2022’ project.
Mr Reddy said BAI also decided to set up Builders Association of India Anti-Corruption Wing in all state chapters to make the sector corruption-free by 2022.
On the importance of pre-cast technology and quality, BAI Chief Mr Patron B Seenaiah said all member companies and contractors recommended having a cell to adopt technologies which can enhance quality and reduce construction time cycles.
He said that “Precast technology can significantly reduce the project completion time, contributing directly to monetary savings and faster development. We are also appealing to the central government to promote and encourage precast technology in infra and housing projects.”
The convention also passed other resolutions asking the centre to set up a single window approval system for infra projects, rationalising and formalising uniform contract condition and tendering,applicable across India by NITI Aayog.
