To combat the problem of water scarcity in the city,Nishkam Sewa Ashram,a non-government organisation,has rendered its services to the public in general for installing submersible pumps and hand-pumps.
Sharwan Kumar,founder chairman of Nishkam Sewa Ashram,said,Many areas in the city have been facing water shortage. We have decided to install free-of-cost submersible pumps and hand pumps in such areas. For installation of submersible,an amount of Rs 20,000 is needed and for hand pumps the requirement is Rs 18,000. We are ready to give this money but want that area residents should also contribute 25%,i.e labour charges,and should own the responsibility of taking proper care of these pumps installed in their areas.
He said,We will charge 25% from area residents,so that they may take care of this public property. Anyone seeking this service in an area can contact Nishkam Sewa Ashram at 2806296 and also at 2806283.
Meanwhile,the NGO has also urged the people to plant fruit plants. The chairman said,We are providing fruit plants free-of-cost to the residents,schools,colleges and other organisations. Anyone,who can take good care of these plants,can get these plants from us. These plants will provide nutritious diet to many needy and poor people and will also help clean the environment.
