We take significant pride in impacting and improving the lives of those who create our homes in a responsible manner, thereby reinforcing our humble collective efforts towards nation building".

PNB Housing Finance Limited has collaborated with CREDAI and various NGOs to offer day care services to the children of construction workers on various construction sites and provide these children with education, hygiene and nutrition. This also helps the workers to focus on their job and enhance their performance without worrying about their children. PNBHFL has till now established various day care centres in Delhi NCR at construction sites and urban slum areas.

As PNB Housing exlains further, thousands of men and women migrate from smaller cities and villages to urban areas for better employment opportunities every year and live on construction sites. They generally lack the skills required for the trade like bar-bending, shuttering, masonry, tiling, plumbing and painting. Addressing these, PNB Housing Finance Limited has joined hands with pioneer skill development institute to enable the workers enhance their productivity and has already up skilled many construction workers in Delhi NCR till date.

Adding further, Gupta said "We firmly believe that it is imperative to work for the welfare of the society at large and contribute to the nation's wealth which we have been trying to do in all possible ways."
