Works on these projects, which will supply water to 256 villages and 72 hamlets, are in progress. Adding that, the state government has sent three more project proposals, costing INR 236.85 crore, to NABARD for financial assistance.

The second proposal aims to supply water to 109 villages and nine hamlets.

The state government was getting financial assistance from the National Capital Region Planning Board to modernise the sewerage system in urban areas. As many as nine plans have been approved at an estimated cost of INR 72.10 crore.

The state officers have been given special directives to ensure that water is supplied via tankers to areas which are experiencing a water crisis.

RO plants have been installed in areas which have a scarcity of pure water.

About 1,200 to 1,300 Million Litres per Day (MLD) of water was being treated in the state sewerage treatment plants (STPs) out of which only 30 to 50 MLD water was being reused.
