Amid the rising demand emanating from the real estate sector, the government has stepped up efforts to create a reservoir of technically skilled people to meeting demand of the construction and allied sectors.

It has been decided that it is important that most fresh and upskilling training programmes will have to be delivered at the construction sites.

The training curriculum under this initiative will range from minimum 80 hours (10 days) to a maximum of 6 months, reports have said.

The National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO) under the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs has launched skill training and job creation programmes in the construction sector that is estimated to benefit 250,000 mostly poor people.

The training programme will be under the Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Urban Livelihoods Mission, said the association said in a statement.

NAREDCO President Niranjan Hiranandani said: “There are two objectives of this MOU, first is to provide employment to urban poor waiting to enter the construction sector and secondly up-skill the semi-skilled construction workers working on construction sites to a skilled category.”
