KARNATAKA: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Monday inaugurate water supply projects worth Rs 2,500 crore at Shivamogga and Belagavi districts of Karnataka.
Implemented under the Centre's flagship 'Jal Jeevan Mission', the water supply projects will benefit more than 13 lakh people of the two districts, according to a press release.
On February 6, PM Modi laid the foundation stones for two Jal Jeevan Mission projects at Tiptur and Chikkanayakanahalli in Karnataka's Tumakuru.
The Tiptur Multi-Village Drinking Water Supply Project has been implemented at a cost of over Rs 430 crore, the release said.
The multi-village water supply scheme to 147 habitations of Chikkanayakanahlli taluk has been implemented at a cost of about Rs 115 crore.
The projects will facilitate the provision of clean drinking water for the people of the region.
On January 19, PM Modi laid the foundation stone for the Yadgiri multi-village drinking water supply scheme under the Jal Jeevan Mission at Kodekal in the Yadgiri district of Karnataka.
A water treatment plant of 117 MLD was proposed to be built under the scheme. The project, which costs more than Rs.2050 crore, will provide potable water to about 2.3 lakh households of more than 700 rural habitations and three towns of the Yadgiri district.
The projects have been launched as part of PM Modi's relentless focus on the provision of safe drinking water supply in all households of the country, the release said.
The predominance of water supply projects is visible in most of the recent projects inaugurated by PM Modi across several states recently.
In October last year, Prime Minister Modi had inaugurated water supply projects in several areas of Gujarat, including Banaskantha, Junagarh, Rajkot, Vyara and Porbandar.
In Rajkot, he laid the foundation stone of two water supply projects. In Vyara and Tapi, PM Modi laid the foundation stone of water supply projects worth over Rs 300 crore.
In Jamnagar, Gujarat, he had laid the foundation stone for the Kalavad Group augmentation water supply scheme of Kalavad/Jamnagar Taluka and the Morbi-Maliya-Jodiya group augmentation water supply scheme, in October last year.
