Sevalaya, in its quest for rural development has partnered with Asian paints to bring clean drinking water to Adigathur village. The project, aptly titled ‘Water ATM’, will be treated and stored in a tank and distributed on a ‘pay-as-you-drink’ model, to the villagers. The cost is very nominal and each family is issued with a card, from where they can draw the drinking water (10 lit at ₹ 1). The quantity of water will be fixed by the local panchayat and the nominal charge collected will go towards the maintenance of the water tank.
