JICA project deferred in Cuttack

Cuttack: The inauguration of the project to improve the drainage and sewerage system in Cuttack city has been deferred.

"Due to certain technical complications, the inauguration of drainage and sewerage project funded by JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) in the city has been deferred," Mayor of Cuttack S K Ghosh said here on occasion of Local Self-government Day on Friday.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik would launch the project in a month, he said.
