A delegation of Confederation of Real Estate Developers Associations of India (CREDAI) met principal secretary Y Srilakshmi and requested her to consider extension of the deadline as most people could not file their suggestions and objections due to Covid situation. Speaking to TNIE, CREDAI Vizag chapter president KSR Raju said they sought extension of time and conduct of an open house on master plan.
