Saroornagar: The supply of drinking water through tap connections under the ambitious Mission Bhagiratha scheme is likely to be delayed further due to slow progress of work including the construction of overhead tanks in the rural areas.

Though, GHMC officials had announced that they would provide tap connections to each and every household and supply drinking water by ensuing Dasara and Diwali festivals, in reality it remains a distant dream with the pace of work being abysmally slow.
She also added that, “Singareni Colony, Tapovan Colony and Green Park Colony and few other colonies will be supplied water through this reservoir. For this colony the water supply is given from Vanasthalipuram water tanks”.
Singareni Colony locals said, “The work has been stopped for the past three months, due to shortage of water we are ordering water tankers once in four days to fulfil the basic needs.” Another Resident Shiva said, “We even complained to the corporator and asked her to arrange water tanks alternate days.”
