According to a communication from the Delhi government, financial aid worth 5,000 rupees per person was deposited into the accounts of 295,000 construction workers on Saturday.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced financial assistance to construction workers affected by the ban on construction and demolition activities to reduce air pollution. The remaining workers may receive this payment within the next two days.
Additional registration activities will be held through camps organized for unregistered workers in the city.
The number of construction workers in Delhi is estimated to be about 1 million. Nearly 700,000 workers have registered or are in the process of registration.
A total of 600,000 workers are registered with the Delhi Construction and Other Construction Workers Welfare Committee, and the registration process for approximately 100,000 workers is underway.
The Delhi government has imposed a ban on construction activities for about a week and then lifted the ban earlier this week on the grounds that air quality has improved. On November 24, the Supreme Court re-imposed a construction ban on NCR. The SC order also stated that states should use funds collected as labor subsidies for the welfare of construction workers and provide them with livelihood during the period of prohibition on construction activities.
