Bangalore: Work on the fourth stage of Cauvery Water Supply to Bangalore project will begin in December and be completed in two years.
Minister Katta Subramanya Naidu told reporters here on Saturday water from the Torekadanahalli reservoir and treatment plant will be supplied to the city. The Centre has cleared work on the project and the funding pattern . "We will get a soft loan of Rs 3,328 crore from the Japan Bank of International Co-operation for this,'' he said.
The Centre has also agreed to a project aimed at conserving and developing lakes in the city and reusing water. It has sought a detailed project report.
The state has requested the Centre to clear a plan to provide reused water to fringe areas like KR Puram and Mahadevapura . This could be taken up under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission at a cost of Rs 308 crore. The Centre's share is 35%, while the state will bear 15% of the cost. The remaining amount will be covered by loans. "The Centre has agreed to consider the project,'' he said.
