National conference on Affordable Housing for All June 2, 2007 Mumbai, India
Construction Sector accounts for 5% of the GDP Gross Annual business Volume : Rs.230,000 crores Growth Rate : 6-8% in recent years Construction is the second largest employer after agriculture Employs about 18 million persons directly and 14 million indirectly Doubled its share in total employment from 2.8% in 1983 to 5.4% in Recorded highest growth rate in employment in the last two decades Construction as a Sector Heading towards better employment opportunities & poverty alleviation ?
