They also mentioned that during the crisis period of Covid-19 the female workers equally supported the male workers at the construction site, worked enthusiastically to make Bengal Peerless as one of the most well received and well sold project of India. Although there were no such convenience arranged for women’s especially, so it was really difficult for them to work.

Also there is no special amenities arranged for female workers at the construction site however Bengal Peerless tries as well as take care of them and provides them a better environment for work.
