Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Tuesday approved a policy to ensure adequate supply of drinking water for inhabitants of all far-flung deras and dhanis which were not yet covered under the rural water supply scheme.

A spokesperson for the chief minister's office said under this new policy, mini water works would be installed in deras and dhanis with a population of above 250 and micro water works for dhanis with a population of 100 to 250. Dhanis with a population less than 100 would have Indian mark-II deep-well hand pumps where groundwater is fit for human consumption.
