New Chapter in Agricultural Progress between Andhra Pradesh Govt. and Jain Irrigation: N. Chandrababu Naidu, 3 Ministers along with thousands of farmers attend groundbreaking ceremony
We are very happy that Mr Chandrababu Naidu invited Jain Irrigation because he understood the faith farmers have in our Late Founder Chairman Shri Bhavarlalji Jain and his close association with farmers. The Project at Kurnool will be set up in an area of 623 acres which include the plants of drip, sprinklers, PVC pipes, HDPE pipes etc. which will be set up in stages from 6 months to nearly 3 years. The standard of living of farmers in A. P. will definitely go up due to these projects.
