Ooratchikotai Water Scheme to be linked with AMRUT in Tamil Nadu
The state government of Tamil Nadu has finally given the approval to the Ooratchikottai water scheme within the state of Tamil Nadu. According to the latest updates from the Independent correspondent, the new water scheme will be linked with a major scheme AMRUT (Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation) that was earlier launched by the Urban Development Union Ministry.
- The latest updates states that the final dates for linking the two projects under single scheme have not yet been announced. It is also obvious that the state government has announced an allocation of the set budget to be implemented in the launching of the two schemes.
