Yesterday, at the Hidco Board meeting, it was decided that such activities would be allowed on a revenue sharing basis. I informed our System Manager to put up a short notice in the Hidco website as follows:
"Persons interested in organising boating, snorkelling, water sports, ballooning, angling or other such activities on a 49:51 revenue sharing basis may contact Hidco".
Last evening, ILFS/BUIDL organised an open air "Kabi Pranam" at Rabi Aranya of Eco Park. Here is a photo:

We have started preparing for the monsoons by looking at drainage projects. Last year, monsson rains were relatively less and there was no flooding issue. This year, we are starting to take action in respect of drainage channels. I visited yesterday morning a site where a box culvert is being constructed. This will connect water channels to a link canal in Action Area II. Here is a pic:

"Will be completed by April"
