“The water crisis in the Udipi taluk would be tackled following the elaborate plans chalked out to ensure water either through tankers or by planned rationing” Udipi MLA Pramodh Madhwaraj said.
The wate -level at Baje reservoir currently has water up to 2.55 meter and last year it was 3.14 meter on the same day. The water level is rapidly decreasing owing to high evaporation level following scorching sun. Rs. 50 lakh each for urban and rural areas have been allotted to supply water. He said the task force would spend Rs. one crore to ensure water supply.
Speaking on the new KSRTC bus stop coming up at Bannajne, the MLA added that 2.50 acres of land is given to KSRTC from the PWD. The transfer of land will enable a sophisticated KSRTC bus stop at a cost of Rs five crore in the first phase.
The other bus stop for JNURM buses will be built shortly. As many as 30 buses are proposed, of which 10-15 buses are introduced. The low floor buses would be available for the passenger comfort shortly.
