The Gujarat government on Saturday announced the setting up of State’s largest desalination plant at Jamnagar with daily capacity to treat 100 million litres per day (MLD) of sea water.

An agreement is signed between Gujarat Water Infrastructure Limited and Essel Infraprojects Limited for the Rs 700-crore project to be developed under Public Private Partnership (PPP).

Chief Minister Vijay Rupani termed it a historical development, which will make drought a matter of history for the State.
