CREDAI-Bengaluru organised May Day event for 678 labourers and families of member projects
May Day or Labour Day is universally celebrated as a day to take a break from the monotony of the daily work routine. CREDAI-Bengaluru recognizes that such a day of relaxation is certainly due for all the labourers across its member projects. In light of this, the organization planned a day of fun, games and good food for all labourers and their families, across member projects in the city at Mount Carmel College Grounds, Vasanthnagar. CREDAI-Bengaluru hosted around 678 labourers in this celebration.
Ashish Puravankara, President, CREDAI-Bengaluru says, “Rome was not built in a day; it took millions of man-hours, their perseverance and commitment to the goal. From time immemorial the importance of our labour community has been spoken at great length.
They are pivotal to the growth of any culture, society or a nation. In fact, in our industry, the labourers play the most crucial role, they are the very foundation upon which our brick and mortar dreams get realised. It’s the relentless toil of theirs which act as the perennial source of fuel to keep the industry growth engine moving.
So it is very natural that we set a day aside to acknowledge their efforts not just to our industry but to our nation building. I urge everyone to take a little time off to thank these unsung heroes of ours for their invaluable contribution to our overall growth.”
Suresh Hari, Vice President, CREDAI Bengaluru said, “May Day or Labour’s Day is celebrated on May 1st every year and this is the 8th edition of CREDAI Bengaluru. This gives us the platform to conduct these activities and we dedicate such day for our labourers, where we recognize their talent through Sports activities which are planned for this day for fun games with food for all and even for their families.
Adarsh Narahari, Secretary, CREDAI-Bengaluru said “Labourers are the people who meet the aspirations of thousands of home buyers by toiling round the clock . This celebration of May Day is a token of our appreciation for all the work they do and of course to their families that support them”.

The annual May Day Celebrations is something that our Labours look forward to enthusiastically. It is something that helps them feel part of the family”.
