If you have not installed a water meter, get it done soon. By not doing this, you are doing your own financial loss. In non-metered houses, the bill is coming not only on the basis of average, but also by imposing penalty. This bill is many times more than metered bills. These things have come to light after dozens of complaints coming to the Municipal Corporation regarding water bills these days. Although from the beginning of this year, the Municipal Corporation has started the drive to install meters in all the zones in the city, but now only about 20 percent have been installed.
Get the connection done by simply charging the meter
In March this year, the Municipal Corporation received a notification issued by ULB. There was talk of regularizing water connections without any charge. After this, the corporation started the drive to install water meters by making regular water connections. In this, only the consumer will have to pay the meter charge. Other than that, no charge.
Corporation has given 76 thousand water connections
In the last year 2019, the Municipal Corporation had only 36 thousand water regular connections. Now their number has increased to 76 thousand. The drive continues in every zone right now. Municipal corporation officials claim that by the end of this year there will be up to 2.5 lakh regular connections. Whereas when it comes to the properties of residential, commercial, industry and other types of categories in the city, it is more than 3 and a half lakh.
Bill came in higher than average, many got it right
Sachin Yadav, a resident of Hira Nagar, said that his water bill has come on an average basis. He had a bill of Rs 2650, giving a discount of 20%. After this, he has applied for the meter. Jyoti Singla, a resident of Patel Nagar, says that she does not have a water meter. His bill came to 5425. When I went to get treatment, I got 25% rebate. Also applied for meter. Municipal Corporation’s EXEN headquarters Amit Shandilya said that the water bill without meter is on an average basis. There is also a penalty. People are being made aware to install meters.
