Chairman of the State Finance Commission Satpal Singh Satti today laid the foundation stone of a drinking water scheme at Behdala village.
A sum of Rs 15 lakh will be spent on the scheme. He inaugurated the drilling work of a tube well in the village.
Addressing a public gathering, Satti said under the Jal Jeevan Mission, every house was being provided with a drinking water tap by the end of 2024. He said during the last two-and-a-half years, the Jai Ram Thakur government had provided drinking water to more than 5,000 houses.
Expressing concern over the decreasing level of ground water, Satti said various techniques of recharging the ground water were being put to use so that the coming generations would not face water scarcity.
Satti said as part of the Prime Minister’s ambitious project of providing irrigation to every field, the state government had sanctioned 111 micro irrigation schemes for which Rs 200 crore had been released by the Centre to Himachal Pradesh.
