Public Works Department (PWD) has notified a large number of police stations in the city namely Brahmpuri, Murlipura, Jhotwara, Harmaada, Malviya Nagar etc. Not only in the police stations, but also in police quarters the work of making the rooftop rainwater harvesting structures will be done.

The campuses are large and have a big roof which can be put to use by making rooftop rainwater harvesting system. ...
