ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2016
Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Associations of India (CREDAI) was established in 1999 with the charter for policy advocacy in favour of housing and real estate. In this endeavour, CREDAI interacts with Government, academics and media. In particular, CREDAI partners with the Government in its programme of ‘Housing for All by 2022. CREDAI promotes fair play and transparency in the business of real estate. In particular, to safeguard the interest of home buyers, the members of CREDAI voluntarily adopt a ‘Code of Conduct’. Consumer Grievance Redressal Forum have been set up to serve as the first port of call for home buyers to register their complaints and have them resolved efficiently and cost-effectively.
CREDAI is the prime knowledge sharing forum for latest industry data, technological advancements and industry benchmarks. CREDAI has emerged as the preferred platform with regard to national discourse on Housing and Habitat through strong networking with Government, Policy Makers, Investors, Financial Institutions and Real Estate Developers. This is reflected in its membership base comprising more than 11,940 members today across 23 state and 203 city chapters. CREDAI targets to reach at least 300 cities by the end of March 2019. The convening power of CREDAI is mobilised to hold 4-8 conclaves and conferences annually that are attended by 800-1000 decisions makers of real estate and that serve as a platform for deliberation of policy.
To facilitate synthesis of CSR and Sustainability initiatives of CREDAI Members across the country, CREDAI has set up CREDAI CSR FOUNDATION in May 18, 2015. The Foundation, supported initially through voluntary contributions of CREDAI’s registered members, has trained 1 lakh construction workers. It hopes to double that number over the next two years. CREDAI Cleam City Movement ensures zero solid waste from over 1.60 lakh apartments.
CREDAI Youth Wing nurtures the next generation of CREDAI leadership by inculcating a social and ethical commitment. They are encouraged to participate in CSR activities of CREDAI towards this end.
CREDAI Women’s Wing encourages women professionals and entrepreneurs in the real estate sector.
CREDAI helps industries associated with real estate to enlarge their presence and visibility through the Preferred Partnership Programme.
The Belgaum Builders & Developers Association is affiliated to CREDAI, National. The CREDAI, Belgaum was formed in the year 2007 with initiation of bringing all the Builders together under a single platform. The main motto was to insist the administration to form the new Bye Laws & Zonal Regulations. This is now fully accomplished by the Government of Karnataka Notification during March 2014. The Members have fully supported for this cause as the focus of the Association was not only for self, but also for the industry. There was a support for registration of the construction workers working with the Builders. This broad vision has helped the Association to grow in leaps & bounds.
The Belgaum Builders & Developers Association was the one which brought the City Corporation of Belgaum, BUDA, Architects, Lawyers, Engineers and the common Citizens under one roof and conducted seminar to form Zonal Regulations & Bye laws. The Bye Laws formed was well appreciated by everyone and even BUDA have adopted the same for their revision.
The strong team for the year 2013-14 under the dynamic leadership of Shri Chaitanya Kulkarni is working on the agenda which was decided on the day of taking over. Now the Association is focused and decided to work on various Social, Environmental matters, promotion of overall Belgaum City, Airport Development etc.
