Con­fed­er­a­tion of Real Es­tate De­vel­op­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tions of In­dia (CREDAI) will hold its an­nual con­clave, Credai Delhi Con­clave 2014, on Novem­ber 24-25, 2014 at Ho­tel Taj Palace, Delhi. The theme of this year’s con­clave is Clean In­dia-Skilled In­dia-Strong In­dia. As many as 800 de­vel­op­ers par­tic­i­pat­ing d will take the ‘Swachh Bharat’ pledge.

The con­clave will de­lib­er­ate on pol­icy mea­sures to max­imise pri­vate ef­forts to­wards re­al­is­ing prime min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s vi­sion of Hous­ing for All by 2022.

In an at­tempt to repli­cate ef f or t s t o re­duce g arbage taken by Credai’s Kochi Clean City Move­ment, Ma­garpatta City and Nanded City in Pune across the coun­try, as many as 800 de­vel­op­ers at­tend­ing the con­clave from across the coun­try are ex­pected to take a Swachh Bharat pledge to work ef­fec­tively to­wards garbage re­duc­tion and waste man­age­ment. With this pledge, CREDAI would be­come the first among the as­so­ci­a­tions of in­dus­try to adopt the Swachh Bharat mis­sion.

“The ma­chine to ef­fi­ciently de­com­pose garbage costs around R10 lakh. We in­tend us­ing th­ese within the apart­ment com­plexes and hope to move to­wards a zero -waste sit­u­a­tion. We in­tend tack­ling 10 lakh tonnes of garbage in the first year it­self,” says Ro­hit Raj Modi, pres­i­dent, Credai-NCR.

At the con­clave, Credai will un­veil its skill de­vel­op­ment ini­tia­tives, in­clud­ing set­ting up of in­sti­tu­tions for skill de­vel­op­ment in the realty sec­tor as it is the sec­ond largest em­ployer after agri­cul­ture. “This will be on the lines of the Credai Pune’s Kushal – an ini­tia­tive un­der the Na­tional Skills De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion ( NSDC) that trains over 5000 labour­ers. At the con­clave, Credai mem­bers will de­lib­er­ate on the type of model that needs to be adopted to train un­skilled labour­ers. The stake­hold­ers of th­ese in­sti­tu­tions will be NGOs that are ac­tive in the skilling sec­tor and de­vel­op­ers. We will freeze the model for skill de­vel­op­ment cen­tres by end of this year and will first start rolling it out in the Met­ros,” says Modi.

A large green field in­sti­tu­tion for skill de­vel­op­ment to be set up in Ahmed­abad will be ready by March 2017. Land for the cen­tre has al­ready been gifted by a de­vel­oper.

Prom­i­nent lead­ers such as M Venka­iah Naidu, min­is­ter of ur­ban de­vel­op­ment, hous­ing and ur­ban poverty alle­vi­a­tion, P Ashok Ga­jap­athi Raju, min­is­ter for civil avi­a­tion, Prakash Javadekar, min­is­ter for en­vi­ron­ment and forests, Arun Jait­ley, min­is­ter for fi­nance, Ban­daru Dat­ta­treya, min­is­ter for labour and em­ploy­ment, Piyush Goyal, min­is­ter for power, coal and new and re­new­able en­ergy, Ra­jiv Pratap Rudy, min­is­ter for skill de­vel­op­ment, Ram Kri­pal Yadav, min­is­ter of drink­ing wa­ter and san­i­ta­tion will share their views at the con­clave.

Gee­tam­ber Anand, pres­i­dent elect, Credai, said, “The con­clave will pave the way for In­dia’s com­mit­ment to in­clu­sive, sus­tain­able and af­ford­able de­vel­op­ment to meet the vi­sion of Hous­ing for All by 2022. We also be­lieve that our ef­fort to­wards Swachh Bharat Mis­sion will set an ex­am­ple for vol­un­tary ac­tion to clean In­dia.
