Solar pumps for potable water in Naxalite areas

According to reports, Chhattisgarh government has come up with a plan to provide water supply using solar water pumps in nearly 1,700 non-electrified village settlements spread over 10 Naxalite affected districts of the state.

The move aimed at providing safe drinking water in these areas came after a state level meeting which reviewed drinking water supply schemes.

All these 10 districts are covered under the centrally sponsored Integrated Action Plan (IAP) for development of basic infrastructure in the Naxalite areas.

The Centre has already sanctioned Rs 20 crore for providing solar pumps in the remote villages of Bastar, Kanker, Dantewada, Bijapur, Narayanpur, Sarguja, Jashpur, Kabirdham and Rajnandgaon districts.
