The projects will be implemented at a total cost of Rs 541 crore. Among the seven projects, four are related to water supply, two to sewerage treatment and one to riverfront development.

Speaking during the virtual inauguration ceremony, the Prime Minister said that urbanisation is the reality of present times.
