"Most of the Doaba people are settled abroad and they are eager to serve their native lands. We need to invest their money in different NRI schemes and draw four- times more money,"he added.

"We have also received the sanction for laying sewerage works worth `2.5 crore in a scheme of World Bank and the panchayat had deposited its share of `2.09-lakh,"Raipur said.
