Mangaluru: The Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI) Mangaluru Chapter gave away scholarships to 20 children of construction workers from this academic year.
Credai Mangaluru Chapter President D B Mehta said that students welfare has been a priority and as a part of its commitment towards the education of the poor and needy, Mangaluru chapter of Credai has decided to provide scholarships.
The scholarships are being given on a merit basis to ensure that the children of labourers do not end up as unskilled labourers and instead continue their studies.

Karnataka Building and other Construction Workers’ Welfare Board is collecting 1% of the project cost from the employer as cess.
He also said that CREDAI aims to give scholarship to 100 children from next year.
