Bengaluru: The 28th All India Builders’ Convention organized by the Builders’ Association of India concluded with the resolution passing session and valedictory, at Bengaluru.

Release of land banks by the Govt for “Housing For All by 2022”,single window approval system for infra projects, rationalizing and formulating a uniform contract condition and tendering applicable across the country by NITI Aayog, encouraging use of precast material for quicker completion of projects, need for ‘Cement Regulatory Authority’ and establishing a separate ministry for infrastructure development due to the heavy investment opportunities expected in the sector, were among several demands passed as resolutions by BAI internally. The resolutions passed in the convention will be submitted to the respective ministries and authorities in State Governments and Govt. of India with a demand to implement them.

Emphasizing on the need for Prime Minister’s Intervention in institutionalizing  these demands to address core issues faced by the sector, HN Vijaya Raghava Reddy, National President, BAI, said, “we have decided we will meet the Prime Minister. We will request him to institutionalize our demands and brief him of the sustainable advantage it would create towards development of the country and equally in fast tracking Prime Minister’s flagship infrastructure and housing projects.”


“We will setup ‘Builders Association of India Anti Corruption Wing’ in all state chapters of the association. The wing will take up matters with the authorities upfront and resolve. With this initiative by 2022 we will make the sector corruption free” remarked Reddy elaborating on BAI’s action plan to tackle corruption in the sector.


Explaining the importance of pre-cast technology and quality, B Seenaiah, Chief Patron, BAI, said, BAI has recommended all the member companies and contractors to have a technology cell in order to adopt technologies which can enhance quality and reduce construction time cycles. Precast technology can significantly reduce the project completion time contributing directly to monetary savings and faster development.  We are also appealing to the Govt. of India to promote and encourage precast technology in infra and housing projects.”


With resolution of the core issues faced by the sector and adoption of technology the flagship infrastructure projects of the Government and ‘Housing For All By 2022” looks achievable.
