Bottled water for villages

Scheme to implement in 11 districts from three selected companies


The State Government has decided to go ahead with the scheme proposed by the former Chief Minister, Dr.YS Rajasekhara Reddy to supply packaged drinking water to villages where ground water is found to be polluted covering all the 1,128 mandals across the State. Speaking to media on Tuesday, Rural Water Supply Minister P Viswaroop said three companies had already been selected to implement a meticulous process. The selected companies are Water Health India, ATM and Swiss Tech.

The Chief Minister K Rosaiah said at a meeting earlier had approved the proposal made by the department to take a loan of Rs.100 crore from HUDCO to implement some water supply schemes which were stopped sometime ago. The loan could not be taken earlier as the rate of interest charged was 13 percent as against 9 percent.

He also cleared another proposal to release Rs.100 crore from the government towards other water supply schemes and sanction additional staff to the department as it was implementing thousands of such schemes with funds from World Bank besides the National Rural Water Drinking Water Programme and NABARD. The minister said by March end, an additional 5,685 villages would be covered with protected water supply scheme.
