Mandalay Region government plans to invite tender proposals for sinking 100 tube-wells for farmlands in Natogyi Township.
The township’s Water Resources and Utilization Department has sunk more than 500 tube-wells for underground water tapping over a five-year period.
Thanks to the tube-wells, local farmers have been able to expand their croplands.
The region government has a plan to sink 780 tube-wells in six townships in fiscal 2015-16.
