Chennai: As part of development plans for areas surrounding the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant, Tamil Nadu government today proposed a Rs 68.10 crore integrated drinking water scheme, aimed at benefiting 13 village panchayats.

The scheme will be based on water from river Tamirabarani and Chief Minister Jayalalithaa has also granted administrative approval for Rs 87 lakh as annual maintenance towards the project, a government release here said.
