Deccan Herald - BSY'S budget: manna from heaven for city's new face?
Rs 100 crore had been allocated to Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB), to provide drinking water to the new zones of BBMP. These areas are covered under Greater Bangalore Water Supply Project (GBWASP), funded by Japan Bank of International Co-operation (JBIC). Since the project would be completed by 2012, the government has to make interim arrangements. BWSSB would spend Rs 100 crore on tube wells and local distribution networks. The budget has also allocated Rs 3400 crore under JBIC funding.
