Mumbai builders have called off their strike scheduled for May 3.
The Maharashtra Chamber of Housing Industry and the Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India had called for a one-day token strike protesting the delay in project approvals and against the State Government’s move to establish a housing regulator.
The Builders Association of India too decided to participate in the strike. Addressing media persons here on Wednesday, Mr Paras Gundecha, President, said the Chief Minister, Mr Prithviraj Chavan, met the association on Tuesday and assured the members that all issues concerning builders would be addressed.
Mr Gundecha said MCHI also made a presentation to Mr Chavan on the issue faced by developers and sought a single window clearance for housing projects. The Chief Minister had also made it clear that the government’s priority was to build affordable housing stock, he said.
