Race to meet water supply date

Darjeeling: The Bengal government is working on a war footing to inaugurate a long-delayed drinking water project in Darjeeling by November next year. The Darjeeling Water Supply Scheme is expected to supply enough potable water to all parts of the town, solving a 30-year-old problem. The Rs 55.86-crore scheme, first conceived in 1995-96, was sent to the backburner for more than a decade before it was revived in 2006.
