CHANDIGARH: The Haryana Government has decided to set up a rain water harvesting system in schools under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme to conserve rain water and recharge the depleting water table, an official spokesman said here on Monday.
The scheme will be launched from Bibipur village in Jind district on a pilot project basis where a rain water harvesting system has been installed at the Senior Secondary School at a cost of Rs.1.40 lakh.
The spokesman said that if the pilot project is successful, the rain water harvesting system will be set up at all government schools in Jind district.
Efforts will also be made to recharge the depleting water table by setting up the system in other institutes too.
