Two of the eight water tankers, each costing Rs. 15 lakh, sanctioned by the Hyderabad Karnataka Region Development Board (HKRDB) to the Kalaburagi Zilla Panchayat (ZP), was inaugurated by Nitin Guttedar, ZP president.

The HKRDB had sanctioned Rs 1.20 crore to the zilla panchayat to procure water tankers to supply drinking water to parched areas during water scarcity, particularly in summer.

The addition of eight water tankers would help reduce the expenditure incurred by the zilla panchayat in hiring private tankers during the summer every year.

According to zilla panchayat officials, one tanker each would be placed in all seven taluk headquarters, with an additional tanker in Kalaburagi to meet any emergency in the district.
