The local irrigation and public health department is all set to submit a detailed project report (DPR) to the ministry of urban development for the funding of proposed alternate drinking water scheme for the town.


Sources said that the previous DPR made for the purpose was rejected by the department as it had several deficiencies.

The irrigation and public health (IPH) department has reportedly completed the survey for the distribution system of drinking water in the town which was not included in the previous DPR.

In the previous DPR, the estimated cost of the scheme was shown `57 crore but in the fresh DPR it could go up to `75 crore. In 2011, an alternate drinking water scheme for the town was proposed from Jalal-Giri rivers near Dadahu, about 37 km away from here, in which ground water was proposed to be lifted. At present, the town is getting drinking water from Nehar Dewar gravity and Kahiri lift drinking schemes which are not enough to meet the demand of the town.

On the basis of the previous DPR the then chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal had also laid foundation stone of the scheme on November 14, 2011, but work on the scheme is yet to start. Sources said that though the Himachal government was providing funds for the scheme, without the approval of the DPR by the ministry of urban development the construction was impossible as the ministry was to provide major part of the funds.

Sources said that distribution system of supplying drinking water to various areas of the town was not included in the previous DPR therefore the chances of funding from the urban ministry was very low and the department had decided to submit a fresh DPR.

According to the norm, each urban area resident should be given 133 litre drinking water everyday but the town is getting only 42 lakh litre water supply every day against the demand of 71 lakh litre.

According to the figure of the IPH department, the demand for water would be one crore in the town.
Executive engineer KK Kapoor, IPH department, said that a fresh DPR was likely to be submitted and also admitted that the previous DPR had several deficiencies. He said that the state government has provided a budget of around `4 crore in current financial year for the scheme.
