Delhi govt provided Rs 5,000 to 2.95 lakh construction workers

On Saturday, the Delhi government deposited Rs 5,000 each in the bank accounts of 2.95 lakh construction workers who have been hit by the ban on construction activities in Delhi because of high pollution levels.

Delhi has six lakh listed construction workers, and another one lakh are in the process of getting listed. The amount will be credited to the accounts of the remaining workers in the coming two days, as per the statement. On Thursday, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had declared his government's decision to render financial help to the construction workers.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia told the media that the Delhi government is standing with construction workers at every step. Workers are the spinal cord of the nation that strengthens the nation. The honour and interests of the workers are the main priority of our government.

As long as the ban on construction activities remains in Delhi, the government will run registration drives via large camps to register those construction workers who are not already listed with the Delhi Construction Worker Board. This move will benefit the Delhi government in supporting all construction workers in Delhi.

There are 10 lakh construction workers in Delhi, out of which seven lakh are now listed, the deputy chief minister told the media. After registration, all workers can additionally get the advantage of schemes introduced for their welfare, he said.

Six lakh workers are listed with the Delhi Construction Worker Board, and approximately one lakh more are in the process of getting listed. After the process of registration of these workers is done, Rs 5,000 will also be transferred to their accounts.
