IRCTC Planning Rail Neer Water Plant Near Mysuru
The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has written to Karnataka government for allotting land near Mysuru to set up the state’s first Rail Neer plant.
A senior IRCTC official said the corporation is looking at setting up a water plant anywhere near the Cauvery river in Mysuru. IRCTC have sent our proposal to the state government asking for land. A plant would generate local employment apart from helping the IRCTC save money spent on transporting water by trucks in 3,000 cases from Palur, he said.
A rough estimate of the infrastructure cost of a ‘Rail Neer’ plant is Rs 20-30 crore, the official said.
