India to Invest $1.8 Billion in Village Water Supplies

India, where 200,000 children four and under die yearly of diseases caused by dirty water, plans to spend 110 billion rupees ($1.8 billion) for the fiscal year ending March 2014 to improve village water supplies.

That’s an almost 5 percent increase from a year earlier.

Of the funds alloted to provincial governments to lay water pipes and modernize networks, 5 percent will be used for villages where groundwater sources have been contaminated by chemicals, according to a statement from the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation.

About 15 percent of the funds will be spent to operate and maintain existing networks, the ministry said yesterday. About 105 billion rupees were alloted for the financial year that ended in March 2013, according to the ministry statement.
