Staff Correspondent

DAVANGERE: Shyamanur Shivashankarappa, Davangere MLA, has called upon people to conserve water.

Inaugurating a workshop on rainwater harvesting under the banner of "Varunadhara" here recently, Mr. Shivashankarappa said it is high time that people use water judiciously. "Successive droughts in the past three years have taught us the importance of water," he said and added that people should voluntarily adopt rainwater harvesting. Mr. Shivashankarappa said women have a vital role to play harvesting rainwater. He called upon self-help groups to promote awareness about rainwater harvesting.

Deputy Commissioner M.B. Dyaberi announced that a five per cent rebate will be given on property tax to those who adopt rainwater harvesting in their houses.

C.J. Dinesh, subject expert, said people have been practicing rainwater harvesting in one way or the other since times immemorial. B.R. Ramesh spoke on rainwater harvesting. President of the Davangere City Municipal Council A.B. Rahim presided over the function.
