Real Estate Sector should invest in skill training in rural areas: Rajiv Pratap Rudy


New Delhi, 29 August 2017- The government feels that real estate developers need to tap the workforce at its origin and train them there before using them to their benefit. Speaking at the 14th National convention of NAREDCO Mr. Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Minister of State (Independent Charge), Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Govt. of India said” Real estate sector needs a lot of skilled workforce. But there is not enough emphasis on skills training. In fact, real estate sector needs to create facilities for skill training but for this to be effective these facilities need to be created at the places where the places from where the workforce originates that is in the rural areas of the country from where they come. This would help the sector in the longer run.”

Taking a cue from Mr. Rudy’s remarks NAREDCO said they have their own plans to set up training facilities in various parts of India and these centres would be operational soon.

NAREDCO feels that modern technology and skill development should work in harmony for better results. Mr. Parveen Jain, President, NAREDCO and CEO Tulip Infratech Pvt. Ltd said “There are no two views about the importance of modern technology in real estate sector. For best results, modern technology and Skill Development should go hand in hand.”

Developers feel that land pooling and rehabilitation of slum dwellers after procuring land for development are two other major aspects that the government and the real estate sector should look into.
