As many as one lakh water taps would be installed in villages falling under 30 subdivisions of Haryana under the ‘Tooti Lagao Pani Bachao’ Abhiyan.

  • Chandigarh, May 16 – As many as one lakh water taps would be installed in villages falling under 30 subdivisions of Haryana under the ‘Tooti Lagao Pani Bachao’ Abhiyan.
  • This was informed by Development and Panchayats Minister, Mr. O.P. Dhankar while presiding over a meeting with district coordinators of Gramin Vikas Ke Liye Tarun (GRAVIT), at Jhajjar today.
  • It was decided in the meeting that in the first phase, the campaign would be implemented in all villages of 30 sub divisions in June. All four subdivisions of Jhajjar have been included in this campaign.
  • Mr. Dhankar said that with the installation of water tap, each household can save about 10 litres of water. This means that 10 lakh litres of water would be saved in 30 subdivisions on daily basis. In a month, the savings would be of three crore litres which would be a great achievement.
  • The Minister said that those panchayats which would install water taps in all houses of their villages would be honoured. On this pattern, volunteers of GRAVIT would also be honoured.
  • It may be recalled that the Minister had held a meeting with Junior Engineers and Superintending Engineers of Public Health Engineering on Monday. In the meeting, he sought information regarding providing adequate water to people in the summers. It came to notice that there are no taps in houses in villages resulting in wastage of lots of water. Therefore, the Minister urged to install water taps in all houses.
