He maintained that there is an urgent need to reduce the housing deficit in the State and, therefore, “anyone serving as an obstacle should be brought to book.”

While warning that contractors must meet the required standards and abide by the directives of the Committee, Yusuf maintained that erring and recalcitrant contractors will have their contracts reviewed and made to refund excess payments to the State Government.

In his contribution, the Commissioner for Housing expressed delight at the stance of the House Committee saying, “I am happy that the House committee is lending a helping hand in putting pressure on the contractors, as many of them had become a clog in the wheel of progress”.
