Mumbai: Appreciating Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's vision of inclusive growth, realtors' apex body CREDAI on Thursday expressed the hope that the idea translates into action in the years to come.CREDAI, which has been demanding a single window system of clearances to cut down delays, corruption and improve deliveries, agreed to Gandhi's address that a clogged system impedes growth.
Commenting on Gandhi's address at CII summit, CREDAI chairman Lalit Kumar Jain said: "It is interesting to note that he spoke about the hurdles put by a clogged system that impede growth. This is exactly the point that we the developer community has been making. The existing system of innumerable approvals and unending visits to various officials has been causing delays in implementing projects which in turn breed corruption," he said.
CREDAI will be more than willing to share its ideas with various political leaders so that the entire system can be changed for the benefit of the society. The apex body has already written open letters to the Prime Minister and MPs airing its views on covering all stakeholders in the real estate regulatory act and making pragmatic changes in the Land Acquisition Act. Jain said it was heartening to note that Gandhi also spoke about giving voice to the millions and promised to listen to them.
"We are sure this kind of paradigm shift in the thinking will result in a positive change for the betterment of the nation as a whole," he said and reiterated CREDAI's commitment to work with the governments at Centre, State and local levels to help millions realise their dreams of owning their own homes.
"Our dream is to transform India into a housing surplus nation from the current stage of housing shortage and we can do it," Jain added.
