“Comprehending the significance of skilling and up-skilling in construction and prepping up for the post-economic slowdown period, NSDC awarded an additional target of 20,000 to CREDAI for the FY2019-20,” it said in a statement.
CREDAI made a foray into skill development in 2011 and has since trained more than 1.25 lakh construction workers under various corporate social responsibility and government schemes.
These training help workers in understanding the finer technical details of their job role, resulting in an increase in efficiency and a decrease in wastage.

CREDAI, as we all know, is an apex body of private real-estate companies that are working hard towards the betterment of the sector and providing a better service to the end-user.
