Purified drinking water has become a necessity in both rural and urban areas. The demand is increasing day by day and water is supplied by different agencies. But the availability of small plants at local level and supply of water at low cost is not available. Based on the availability of ground water (wells, bore wells and other sources) plants may be set up with varying capacities. This demand can be better converted into an enterprise opportunity and the Mission intends to set 17 plants across the state. The project will be implemented in co-ordination with the concerned Local Self Governments.
