Rs 5K reward for info on unplugged borewells

Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, June 13

Under the Tandarust Punjab Mission, the state government has offered reward for reporting unplugged borewells and it will also take criminal action against those persons who do not plug these on their land within a month.

A letter has been issued to all DCs to rope in various field departments to take immediate measures to fill and plug the abandoned borewells in Punjab, said KS Pannu, Mission Director, Tandarust Punjab Mission.

The Mission Tandarust Punjab shall give an advertisement after a month asking the public to give information about the abandoned borewells. The person giving such information will be given a reward of Rs 5,000 after the verification of information. Any mishap in such borewell would attract penalty against the owner of the land under various IPC sections, he said.

The DCs have been asked to initiate a publicity campaign to make the farmers aware about the dangers of unplugged borewells and directing them to ensure that none is left on their fields.

The SDM and DSPs concerned should jointly tour the area and convey to the public the seriousness of the issue and ensure filling up and plugging of all borewells in their jurisdiction. The executive officer/commissioner of municipal bodies should interact with all councillors to make them aware of the issue.
