Ludhiana, August 5

The Municipal Corporation is to purchase land to set up a treatment plant at Bilga village for the upcoming 24x7 water supply project in the city. Now, the MC Commissioner has written to the Principal Secretary of the Department of Local Government regarding the required funds to make the purchase. The civic body has to purchase around 54 acres of land to set up the water treatment plant and the Department of Local Government had earlier given its consent for the same. The MC needs around Rs 34 crore to buy the land. The Principal Secretary has been requested to release the amount at the earliest.

The MC had earlier given nod for the first phase of the 24x7 water supply project during a meeting with a team of the World Bank in March 2020. Under the project, treated canal water would be supplied to city homes. —TNS
