With no additional canal water, 15 new tubewells approved

Mohali is short of 7 million gallons daily (MGD) water for drinking purposes and this figure shoots up to 10 MGD in peak summer (May to July).

Residents of Rassenheri village near Mohali have approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court for quashing the notifications issued under Section 4 and 6 of the Land Acquisition Act for acquiring land for a dumping ground in proximity to their houses. The proposed location of the dumping ground in Sector 102, Mohali, has apparently been shifted from Sector 74 after people had protested.

To prevent wastage of water this summer, the civic authorities in Chandigarh and Mohali have imposed a ban on washing cars and courtyards and watering lawns in the morning hours (5.30 to 9 am).

The ban would come into effect from April 1 and continue till June 30.

In order to ease water crisis in the city, Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) has formally approved the installation of 10 new tubewells in different parts of the city to quench the thirst of residents in the coming summer season.
