Solar based drinking water system in Maoist-hit areas

According to reports, the government plans to install 10,000 solar power based water systems to supply safe drinking water to the people in 78 Maoist-affected areas, the Lok Sabha was informed Friday.

Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh said that the solar-based system will go a long way in solving the drinking water problems of the naxal-affected areas.

The project will be funded from the National Rural Drinking Water Programme and the National Clean Energy Fund.

Ramesh informed that solar-based water systems will be installed in the 78 maoist-affected districts to meet the challenges of drinking water scarcity in these areas.
