Need For Construction Workers Assistance Scheme
During the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown, buildings and other structures in the State are closed. Construction workers do not get employment every day because they have no work. All such labourers are facing many obstacles to meet the basic needs of daily life. The decision was taken during a meeting on Saturday attended by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, and other State ministers.
The government also has a pool of construction cess collected from developers when the construction workers were allowed to work at sites. Various welfare schemes have been implemented for the workers based on assistance from the Cess Fund, which is deposited with the Board. A sum of nearly Rs. 250 crore would be drawn from the fund for this Construction Workers Assistance Scheme of Rs. 2,000.
The Maharashtra Vikas Aaghadi government stands firmly behind workers affected due to the lockdown. Rs. 2,000 per construction worker has been announced by the government. This will benefit 12 lakh construction workers in the state.
