Haryana PWD minister Rao Narbir Singh on Wednesday inaugurated a community water treatment system and a mobile medicare unit at Teekli village, which is being developed into a model village—the first in Gurgaon district.
Singh, who is an MLA from Badshahpur constituency, also inspected the new village crematorium and the other infrastructure projects that are being developed under the model village project.
The water treatment facility has been installed by the DLF foundation, which adopted the village, to provide clean drinking water for human and animal consumption at the village in Sohna tehsil, about 15 km from Gurgaon.
The water treatment system will sterilize and store water from where villagers can carry clean water to their homes.
“Since most of the diseases are caused by contaminated water, this water system will go a long way in minimizing the incidence of waterborne diseases here. I appreciate the foundation’s work,” Rao Narbir Singh said, adding a community centre would also be constructed here soon.
The water purification plant was custom-built in China and imported from there; its accessories have been sourced locally, said a representative of DLF Foundation.
A primary medicare unit to give affordable medical consultancy and free medicines has also been inaugurated in Teekli. A medical van has also been provided to support doctors and the medical team to move around the village and provide consultancy services.
Village sarpanch Raveena Devi said Teekli has been lagging behind on several parameters but the situation is set to change now with such commendable initiatives.
“These initiatives will go a long way in contributing to the overall well-being of the village,” said Dr Vinay Sahni, chief executive officer of the DLF foundation. He said the model village project aims at holistic development of villages through multi-stakeholder engagement and sustainable outcomes.
