24X7 Water Supply: French Officials Ask UT To Prepare Detailed Report To Fetch Funds

CHANDIGARH: In a bid to provide the UT municipal corporation with financial assistance, the French government has asked the civic body to prepare a detailed report on how it plans to provide the city with 24x7 water supply.

The ambassador of France to India, Alexandre Ziegler, on Wednesday visited Chandigarh to discuss the projects under smart city. The officials of the Chandigarh administration, along with Ziegler and his collegues, held a special meeting with municipal commissioner Jitender Yadav and his team to discuss the water supply project.

The exact financial estimate of the project is yet to come, but sources have revealed that the project cost could exceed Rs 500-crore mark.

The move has come at a time when project management consultant of the smart city has already designed and prepared the first 24x7 water supply project plan for Manimajra. The project plan is waiting for an approval from the smart city board.

“A tender will be floated for the project. It will be the first 24x7 water supply project that would cater to such a wide area in the city. Manimajra has a population of over 3 lakh people. The exact financial expenditure of this project is yet to come, but as per initial estimates, the project would cost around Rs 70 crore,” sources revealed.

The civic body has already prepared a consolidated report, but now plans to expand the same with some add-ons.

“The detailed report will have information about the pipelines, detailed survey of each area of the city, machinery, upgradation of the old infrastructure, etc,” sources said.
