Relief Measures to overcome the difficulties encountered by the Construction Industry stakeholders due to the 3rd wave of COVID -19 outbreak.
Board of Management Decision -BD 21-06-4.2 of Board meeting 05/2021 held on 19.05.2021

Granting a Moratorium for Construction Contractor Registration

  1. Moratorium for Registration Validity

    Contractors whose registration validity expires on or after 01.05.2021 will be extended till 31.10.2021 for a period of 06 months, without a vacuum. This will also be applicable for the registrations expired on or after 01.01.2021 and submitted applications but not received extensions due to certain lapses.

    However, Contractors can use the online Systems (limited email facilities and Renewal Online System) and physical submission to our District Offices and to our Head Office for any transaction including Upgrading or New registrations if desired, as our services run uninterrupted with minimum staff.

  2. Record Book entries and Registration Fees

    Contractor Record Book endorsements and charging of fees for automatic extensions will be carried out after the restoration of official activities. The extensions will be published in the CIDA Website immediately.

  3. Registration Requirements

    During the period under observation as decided by the Board of Management, requirements such as Financial Facilities, EPF Payment records, Project experience considering the availability of works will be waived off, when restoration of registration is done after the moratorium.
