Nurmahal sewerage project running    11 years behind schedule



 The ongoing Rs`24.4-crore project for laying sewerage pipelines in Nurmahal town has yet to be completed and commissioned even after 11 years.

The project, started by the Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority (Glada) and allotted to private agencies is going on at a snail’s pace. As per schedule, the project was to be completed in nine months.

The then chief minister Parkash Singh Badal had laid the foundation of the project on February 11, 2011.  Under the scheme, the main sewerage pipelines of km length and branch lines of 31 km in length were to be laid down in the entire town for the drainage of sewage to one place.

Nagar council (NC) president Hardip Kaur Johal said the sewerage project has not been completed and some areas are without sewerage and some sewerage lines are yet to be connected to main lines. She said that the executive officer has recently written to Glada executive engineer to complete the sewerage project at the earliest and hand it over to the NC so that connections could be released to residents.
