In the meeting, the residents of the area were informed about the salient features of the project i.e. 24x7 supply of potable water to 100% households of Guwahati city with adequate pressure by 2016. Since at present the water supply coverage to Guwahati city is less than 30%, and so in order to achieve 100% coverage, GMDA is implementing three projects funded by JNNURM (Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission), JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) and ADB (Asian Development Bank) and on completion, the operation of these projects will be brought under a single Agency Guwahati Jal Board.
The meeting which went on for about one hour proved to be productive as the inputs given by the residents will help the project authorities to plan its implementation works with minimum inconvenience to the local residents. Towards the end of the meeting a customer pre-registration exercise was carried out, to record the existing water supply and waste water treatment situation in the locality. It was also informed that the project will continue to organize similar type of meetings in different parts of the city to solicit public co-operation.
