The Hindu Business Line reports that, “Villages in Andhra Pradesh will be supplied bottled ‘mineral water’ rather than piped water from the coming Independence Day.”
The Tribune News Service adds that, “An ambitious scheme to supply bottled mineral water for all villages in Andhra Pradesh will be launched on August 15.”
“Mini-plants for bottling water will be set up in villages having a population of 1,500 and above and local women self-help groups will be involved in running the plants, Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy said today.”
“Within a year of the launch, about 60 per cent of the villages would be covered under the scheme.”
Andhra Pradesh is a state situated on the eastern coast of India. It is India’s fifth largest state with a population of 76,210,007 people.
