Hoshiarpur District

NRIs from Punjab have funded sanitation and development initiatives in their native villages, but this model of development is not without its share of hurdles.

In 2003, President Dr A. P. J. Abdul Kalam visited a small village in Hoshiarpur district of Punjab. Kharaudi had done something he thought others could emulate. It had concrete roads, parks, a library, street lights running on solar cells and a septic tank to treat village's sewage - all thanks to rich Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) of the village who thought that this was the best way to pay back to their place of birth.

A borewell has been dug up to a depth of 260 ft at Rodmarja village, Hoshiarpur District in Punjab. The location is the basin of a river & estimated depth required is 400 ft. A reverse rig was used to drill the borewell. At 260 ft the toll has been broken & we have not been able to fish out the same even with special tools employed by the foreman. The drilling cannot go on further in the present condition. The foreman is advising to install pump at this depth & is guaranteeing full success of borewell.  We had about 25' sand & 35' sand gravel stone.

Sir,  We are installing a tubewell 400 ft. deep of 12" dia. The land is situated in a river basin  of Hoshiarpur distt. in Punjab. As the formation contains boulders upto 100 ft deep, the reverse machine which  employed to dig the bore is not working. Every time water is consumed at a very high rate, stones start are falling into the bore dug by the machine, making it very a difficult situation to manage.

Please advice on how to complete the borewell.

Thanks,

Joshi,
