On Wednesday, National Real Estate Development Council’s women wing NAREDCO Mahi has launched 'Nirmal Jal Prayaas', an initiative to save water bodies. This noble initiative was launched by Hon’ble Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs, Hardeep Singh Puri, in the presence of the National President of NAREDCO. Rajan Bandelkar and President, NAREDCO Mahi, Smt. Tara Subramaniam at PlumbEx India organized by Indian Plumbing Association.
During the event, Hon’ble Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs, Hardeep Singh Puri launched the logo NAREDCO Mahi 'Nirmal Jal Prayaas'.
Addressing the program, Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs, Hardeep Singh Puri said, "I am pleased to be launching NAREDCO Mahi's Nirmal Jal Prayaas Mission. I am informed that this initiative will also lead to saving almost 500 crore litre of water per year".
"It is encouraging to know that women who have been worst affected by water scarcity have stepped up to promote the environment. I look forward to seeing the progress this initiative makes”, he added further.
Speaking on the Government flagship scheme AMRUT, Puri said that AMRUT 2.0 with an outlay of Rs 277,000 crore has been designed to realise the aspirants of a new urban India by making all our cities water secure. In AMRUT 2.0 we are expanding our coverage from 500 cities to all statutory towns in India. It will provide 100% water supply to all houses in 4,700 urban local bodies.
Speaking at the launch of NAREDCO Mahi’s initiative, Rajan Bandelkar, National President, NAREDCO said, "It is well-acknowledged that water conservation is the need of the hour. The Real Estate Industry and Allied stakeholders, need to be sensitized in this regard. With our quest for innovation in real estate and related accessories, NAREDCO has always strived to save every drop of water possible and promote recycling of water. Nirmal Jal Prayaas is going to be NAREDCO Mahi's flagship initiative in this path."
The world today grapples with a looming environmental and water crisis with only 3% of the world’s water being fresh water, and two-thirds of that is tucked away in frozen glaciers which otherwise is unavailable for use, National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO) has been proactive and at the forefront of the Indian Industries' efforts towards water conservation. NAREDCO has been successfully partnering with the Indian Plumbing Association to resolve the plumbing issues faced by builders all through the life of their projects.
The Nirmal Jal Prayaas launched by NAREDCO Mahi looks into mapping ground water as it is very important to save underground water. While the government is doing a lot towards policies, strategy and execution to ensure rural areas get drinking water but without the support of citizen collaboration, this task is incomplete.
Dr. Ananta Singh Raghuvanshi, President Elect, NAREDCO Mahi said, “Each drop matters. If every citizen is conscious of saving these precious Meghkamal drops, we are home.”
NAREDCO Mahi, the women wing of NAREDCO, was set up in 2021 with an aim to empower women entrepreneurs and encourage participation of women in the real estate sector and allied fields. NAREDCO Mahi strives to create an environment where women in the real estate sector can come together to share experiences, harness their skills, draw on their resources, influence, grow and bring about lasting change.
