Delhi Dy Cm Manish Sisodia held a press conference; introduced new helpline for construction laborers

As Delhi continues to battle COVID-19, the worst affected group continues to be the working class and more specifically the laborers on the construction sites. In a press conference earlier today, Deputy CM of Delhi Manish Sisodia has decided to help the construction laborers. The minister stated that in order to ensure that the laborers reap the benefits of the scheme, the cess that the construction companies pay is used for the welfare of the laborers.

Keeping in mind that the laborers are supposed to take off from the company, the Delhi government has come up with a solution. The registered construction laborer can give a call on 1076 and can receive the doorstep registration service. Further, the labor can get registered by sitting in his home and can thus reap the benefits of the welfare scheme.
