The district council (Zilla Panchayat) of Shimoga in Karnataka has established a rural water supply service network with ” round-the-clock” control rooms at district and sub-district (taluk) levels, the Hindu newspaper reported.
Priority would be given to maintaining cleanliness around the drinking water supply units in rural areas. Officials had been directed to repair borewells.
The sub-district control rooms, headed by assistant executive engineers, would deal with complaints and suggestions from users.
