The agreement was signed between Najeeb Zackeria, Chairman, CREDAI Kerala and C. P. Dinesh, MD, FRBL, in the presence of Local Self-Government Minister K. T. Jaleel. CREDAI Kerala, which has 168 members, will encourage its members to use gypsum boards for construction.

The gypsum panel, manufactured by using Australian technology, is approved by the Building Materials Technology Promotion Council. IIT Madras has been conducting research on GFRG panels since last 13 years and they are supporting FRBL and BMTPC in all design related aspects, including publishing design and construction manual.
