Quake-stricken people whose houses collapsed during the 7th September earthquake will be granted free construction permits to build new homes.

Meanwhile a National Statistics Service census indicates that 67,000 households and 6,300 businesses in 33 municipalities in Attica were struck by the earthquake.
