In a press release issued Wednesday, officials of the World Bank funded North East Irrigated Agricultural Project (NEIAP) Wednesday commended the contribution of the Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) in expediting the implementation of agricultural developments projects in Mullaitivu district in the Vanni region of the northeast province.

"NEIAP authorities could witness vast improvement in the implementation of agricultural development projects after the TRO took charge of the social mobilization work in the Mullaitivu district," the press release said.

"NEIAP has planned to restore thirty tanks in the Mullaitivu district. Restoration work on twelve tanks began in 2002. Work on the balance eighteen tanks is to begin in this year. 162 acres under Kalvilankulam tank in the Thunukkai division and 106 acres under Kallavilankulam tank in Manthai east division would be brought back for paddy cultivation once the restoration at an estimated cost of nine million rupees is completed.

"Meanwhile the selection of beneficiaries from the war-affected families under the livelihood assistance scheme is underway. In addition to this an office of the NEIAP and a training centre would be opened in Mullaitivu district shortly," stated the press release.
