SHILLONG: Finalisation of the proposed water policy is likely to take some more time as the Water Resources department still in the process of re-circulating the draft to the various departments.

The senior government official said they would not like to rush in the finalisation of the draft since it was a very important policy for protection of various water bodies “We had earlier put the draft of the policy in the public domain inviting views and suggestions. We are happy to see that many individuals and groups have come forward with their views and suggestions,” the official said.
