Important - Safety requirements while drilling borewells at your home


Taking serious cognizance of past accidents of children falling into borewells, Government has issued guidelines for its construction.

"The guidelines are issued after the Supreme Court's directives in the backdrop of number of cases in which children had been trapped and fallen into borewells, tubewells and abandoned wells," an official from Water Supply Department said.

As per the guidelines, it would be mandatory that a person must inform in writing at least 15 days in advance to the authorities concerned in the area about construction of the borewell.

The drilling agency should be registered and a sign board to be put up near construction of the       well displaying address of drilling agency and owner of the well, it said.

During the construction, the well should be surrounded by barriers or fencing, it added.

The tube should be covered and abandoned wells should be filled up with clay, boulders and pebbles.  

You may please share this with your friends as a reminder, in case such an activity is planned at their premises.

    HOWEVER, THE NEW STEPS MAY AVOID FURTHER SUCH HEARTBREAKING INCIDENTS IN FUTURE.
