1.5 lakh farmers in Haryana to get grant for solar pumping set

Haryana Minister of State for Renewable Energy Banwari Lal said that the state government would bring a scheme, under which, about 1.50 lakh farmers would be given a grant for solar pumping set.

Those farmers who have applied for tube-well connection would be included in the scheme, he said.

Lal said that a boosting pump was installed in Khetawas village at a cost of about Rs 14.98 lakh and water works have been renovated at a cost of about Rs 42.70 lakh in Nilaheri, Jhajjar villages and this would permanently solve the drinking water problem.

He urged the villagers to contribute in the conservation of water for future generations.
