Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Associations of India (CREDAI), Gujarat has come out in support of the Centre’s Agnipath Scheme and said that it would offer employment to at least 3000 Agniveers every year. These young men, who will acquire the Agniveer graduate degree, will be employed in the real-estate sector of the state.
CREDAI’s announcement comes after the officials met with Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel, state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president C R Paatil, and state home minister Harsh Sanghavi to get a detailed understanding of the scheme.
Following the meeting, CREDAI Gujarat president Ajay Patel applauded the initiative and said that the ARMY would train youth in discipline and dedication, and develop their physical and mental skills. As such these young men will be welcomed by many entities.
Patel also said that apart from offering employment to 3000 Agniveers, CREDAI will also explain the Agnipath scheme to its other 25 chapters and urge them to recruit Agniveers. As such, in all CREDAI hopes to employ at least 30000 of these graduates in the real-estate sector across India annually.
Earlier, Anand Mahindra and RPG Group Chairman Harsh Goenka expressed their interest in employing Agniveers as well. Mahindra said, “When the scheme was mooted last year I stated-& I repeat-the discipline & skills Agniveers gain will make them eminently employable. The Mahindra Group welcomes the opportunity to recruit such trained, capable young people.” Goenka had agreed with the view.
