Amdeli, which has a population of around 200 people, all of whom are Telugu speaking, is on the border of Maharashtra and Telangana. District guardian minister Raje Ambrishrao Atram decided to provide these basic facilities for which he made a provision for a Rs 45 lakh fund in the District Planning Council for the village.

The officials of the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co Ltd (MSEDCL) and Public Works Department (PWD) then started the work. The BJP MLA on Thursday inaugurated the facilities.
