Pani Panchayat has turned into a movement in Odisha

Bhubaneswar:15/2/23: Pani Panchayat has turned into a movement in Odisha.

The Chief Minister said that starting with only 700 Pani Panchayats, today Odisha has now 37,000 Pani Panchayats functioning in the State.

The Pani Panchayat, which started on 3.32 lakh hectares of land, is now able to provide water facilities to 23.46 lakh hectares of land. This is indeed a great success, said Naveen, who attended the closing ceremony of Pani Panchayat Pakhya 2023 as a chief guest.
