Villagers of Mandolla Gudem used to be under severe water scarcity. They were forced to wait for a tanker from neighbouring village to get drinking water. Villagers had stopped cultivation due to acute water shortage. But, the NGRI experiment in their village came as a blessing to them.
With the success of the experiment, the groundwater levels enhanced in the village located in Choutuppal mandal in Nalgonda district. Now, the NGRI wants to replicate the same experiment in water starving villages across the state.
