The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY -

Mum­bai: The cen­tral gov­ern­ment will be giv­ing Rs 10,000 crore aid to the state in the next two years to com­plete 107 ir­ri­ga­tion projects.

CM Deven­dra Fad­navis along with ir­ri­ga­tion min­is­ter Girish Ma­ha­jan met union fi­nance min­is­ter Arun Jait­ley on Tues­day to seek additional funds for these pend­ing projects.

“These projects are at dif­fer­ent stages of im­ple­men­ta­tion and are very im­por­tant for the drought prone Marath­wada and Vid­harbha area,” said a se­nior of­fi­cial. There are nearly 277 ir­ri­ga­tion projects that will re­quire Rs 67,000 crore for their com­ple­tion.
