CREDAI-MCHI is an apex body of real-estate developers in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). The agency recently conducted a survey of 85 developers across MMR to ascertain if the labour shortage persists. 

However, the survey found that construction sites had almost double the number of labourers than there were two months ago.

The agency went on to add that of the 20,000 workers surveyed across MMR’s construction sites, only 19 were found to be positive for the coronavirus

A press release issued by the association attributed this to appropriate safety measures. “It shows our strong commitment to provide (sic) a safe working environment for workers and employees,” it read.

However, as pointed out by architect Harshad More, consultants for construction projects are currently not on the list, with only labourers permitted to work. Many have asked for this to change, though the State Government is yet to make a definitive call on the matter.
