Majuli gets Rs 116 cr fund


Majuli has reasons to smile. The world’s largest river island is set to get a huge Rs 116 crore fund to get out of the blues of flood and erosion.


The Planning Commission has cleared the fund to control flood and erosion. The phase two and third of the entire project would be completed by this fiscal. The cost is estimated at 115.99 crore rupee. The scheme aims at protecting 22 Vaishnavite monataries and other public and private properties as well as to ensure economic development and social uplift of the local population.
