Rotary Club of Tirupur East, RI District 3202, a 100 per cent PHF club since its charter, recently installed an RO plant at the railway station in Tirupur.
Tirupur is a textile hub providing employment to nearly eight lakh people; many of them commute by train from neighbouring towns and cities for work. Though there is a water facility in the railway station, there is no provision for clean drinking water. The plant installed by the club, at a cost of Rs 6,50,000, would provide clean drinking water to the passengers.
The manufacturer of the RO plant, Rtn F S Rajkumar, also a member of the club will maintain the RO plant.
Club President Rtn R Periasamy thanked DG K Sridharan Nambiar, D 3202, for sanctioning Rs 1,00,000 from District Grants for this project. The plant was dedicated to the public on March 25 by DG Nambiar and the Divisional Railway Manager Subramsu.
