Credai West Bengal Reinforces Indigenization of Materials in Line with Credai National Policy
News Desk, News Nation 360 : Credai West Bengal, the apex body of the state representing Credai Bengal, Credai Howrah-Hooghly and Credai North Bengal has urged its members to refrain from using Chinese goods they usually import for construction purpose from China. This decision has come in the wake of the ongoing Indo Chinese skirmish along the Ladakh border and as a mark of respect to the Galwan valley martyrs. Due to COVID 19 there is a disruption in supply chain emanating from CHINA which led to delay in completion of projects. Local production and purchase will lead to reduced procurement time, minimal loss of production hours and increased employment opportunities. Most of the raw materials being used are already being manufactured by the MSME sector in the country. CREDAI is ready to extend its support to the local manufacturers for production of materials which are currently being imported and make a shift from Videshi to Swadeshi. The sector already employees more than 52 million workforces in the country and this move will further multiply employment opportunities and give the required stimulus to the economy. Additionally, this step will provide a boost to more than 250 allied MSME industries linked with the realty sector and in turn will increase the overall contribution to the GDP. Elaborating further on the initiative Sushil Mohta, President, Credai West Bengal said that they stand in solidarity with the nation and as a mark of respect to their martyrs, they appeal to their 400 odd members of Credai in the state not to use Chinese goods and embrace Swadeshi or Made in India way. They request all the 250 allied industries which are linked to the real estate sector to manufacture these products locally or source from other countries like Korea and Japan for the time being until the country being self-sufficient.
