The Contribution of Construction Sector to National Income is quite substantial and next only to agriculture, this is the sector which offers the largest employment opportunities, irrespective of the qualification of people. Preference of people to move away from Agriculture to urban areas for avocation and also the disposal of cultivable fields to Real Estate Agencies result in a situation where these lands are converted into plots for construction activities. Another thing to be borne in mind is that the income level of people is also on the increase compared to the past. The easy availability of finance induces people to own an apartment for themselves. All the above give a big thrust to construction sector and in variably, at all the outskirts of the city, construction activities are going on in full swing.
