THANE MUNICIPAL CORPORATION SETS RECORD – TO COMPLETE WATER SUPPLY SCHEME WORK ONE YEAR BEFORE DEADLINE

thane-water-2Residents of the rapidly growing Thane city will soon find their daily struggle for water coming to an end. Thane Municipal Corporation’s ambitious 110 million litres a day (mld) water supply scheme is now set to be commissioned in March 2009 which is a year ahead of its official deadline. For, newly developed upscale residential constructions in the city adjoining the financial capital as well as several sprawling slum pockets are set to benefit from the early completion of the Thane Municipal Corporation’s ambitious 110 million litres a day (mld) water supply scheme, now set to be commissioned in March 2009. The project has been completed a year ahead of the official deadline. At a cost of Rs 72 crore, the project was constructed under the Centre’s JNNURM. More information was given by the city engineer of TMC K D Lala. Thane city’s water woes have been so severe that a few months ago, the corporation had appealed to MCGM to provide about 40 mld of water to enhance the supply to the city’s 17-lakh strong population. While corporations like NMMC’s projects are seeing delays after delay including Morbe Dam, TMC has completed its project one year before proving that even civic administrations are efficient if they have the will to work.
