Late Suraj Parmar, President CREDAI-MCHI

MUMBAI: Realty developers' body Confederation of Real Estate Developers' Association of India (CREDAI) will be observing a token strike on Tuesday to mark solidarity to Late Suraj Parmar, President of Thane chapter of Maharashtra Chamber of Housing Industry (CREDAI-MCHI). Last week, Parmar ended his life due to alleged harassment from various government departments and their repeated demands for bribes. 

In a statement, CREDAI said, "The fight against a corrupt and inefficient government system has led to the loss of our fellow developer, Suraj Parmar of Cosmos Group. He was one of the prominent names in the real estate in Thane region of Maharashtra and had delivered numerous landmark buildings across Mumbai and Thane region. We are extremely saddened and shocked by this incident. As a mark of respect and solidarity to our fellow developer Late Suraj Parmar, all our member developers will protest with closure of offices, sites office, registration and all construction work on 13th October, 2015." 

Developers need around 54-60 approvals and permissions before starting a real estate project. Each approval necessitates dealing with a number of government authorities and this entire process takes about 2-3 years resulting in the projects suffering with cost overrun and avoidable delays to the consuming public. 

CREDAI has consistently sought rationalization of approval processes and single-window system and the demand has been approved in principle by a number of committees. However, action is yet to be seen, the developers' body said in a release.

 Alongside the protest, CREDAI and its members will appeal to the administration to develop an atmosphere of trust that will enable a spirit of partnership, to ensure that that such episodes never recur and the 'ease of doing business' can become a reality.
