A lot of grey construction equipment and supplies are used for construction in India, a country that has a poor infrastructure.
This is not the first time that grey contractors have come under fire.
In May, a local newspaper reported that local grey contractors in Punjab had been accused of hiring illegal labourers and not paying them.
India’s grey construction industry, which has been a source of pride for many, has been in the spotlight recently as the country struggles with the aftermath of a devastating earthquake.
After the quake, the government launched a nationwide crackdown on illegal construction, including hiring illegal labour.
The government also introduced a new code of conduct for construction firms to enforce, and the new code has prompted a slew of local media outlets to call for the government to take a tougher approach to grey construction.
