Minister Shri Gaur directed that a detailed report of the scheme should be chalked out for completing it at the earliest. Process of obtaining funds of second installment for scheme from the Union Government should also be set in motion without delay.
The meeting was informed that Union Government will make available 80 percent and the State Government 10 percent funds for the scheme.
Remaining 10 percent funds were to be made available by Khandwa Municipal Corporation but since its financial condition was weak, the Union Government decided to get the work done under PPP mode and entrusted its responsibility to concessionaire company Vishwa Utilities, Hyderabad.
Full funds to the tune of Rs. 42.68 crore of the first installment have been received from the Union Government.
The State Government has made available Rs. 10 crore for continuing work of the scheme since the second installment has not been received from the Union Government.
Under the scheme, APL families will be supplied filtered water at the rate of about one paise per liter. BPL families will get water at half of this rate.
