    C p Chandra das from Memphis , USAlt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The Govt deserves praise for introducing this scheme. The Hindus give lot of importance to the water from the HOLY GANGES and the government should see that this reaches all the states at more affordable rates. The rate shown is on the high side and the ordinary people may not be in a position to take advantage of this offer. It will be good, if steps are taken for thebimpleation of this, from the commencement of the Ramayana Masom in this July.
