New Delhi: Telangana on Saturday proposed to spend Rs.405.17 crore on enhancing water supply in 11 Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) cities in the state during the current financial year.

The state government has submitted State Annual Action Plan (SAAP) in this regard to the ministry of urban development for consideration and approval.


The total plan outlay proposed for this financial year under AMRUT is Rs.415.51 crore, including Rs.6.05 crore, on capacity building of urban local bodies.

The state government has proposed to focus on enhancing water supply in all the 11 mission cities since water supply in all these cities at present is below the prescribed norm of 135 liters per capita per day.

The state government has proposed to ensure water supply and sewerage connections to almost all households in these 11 mission cities by 2020 besides enhancing water supply to 135 lpcd.

Under AMRUT, central assistance to be provided is decided based on total urban population and number of statutory urban local bodies in each state.

Telangana has a total urban population of 93 lakhs in the 11 cities included in Atal Mission. Central assistance to be provided each year is decided based on these criteria.

During the five year mission period of AMRUT, Telangana has proposed to invest Rs.5,413 crore on water supply and Rs.5,435 crore on providing sewerage connections to all households in 11 mission cities.

Green spaces and parks are proposed to be developed at a cost of Rs.89 crore.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
