Agra, Dec 6 (IANS) Half of Agra, home to the Taj Mahal, will either go dry or get limited water supply for the next 60 days.

The Agra Water Works has announced a major cleaning programme of its water tanks and overhaul of machinery and equipment.

An official said a major water plant had been shut. This will affect the old city and parts of Trans-Yamuna colonies.

The Agra Cantonment area has been facing major water shortage the past few days.

"The situation is only likely to worsen as storage tanks and the local plant have to be cleaned up before water from the Gangajal pipeline reaches next month," an official said.
