    Default how to write application to local muncipaliity for water shortage?

    Hi

    I want to file RTI to local muncipality for water shortage in our area.
    All ponds & dams were overloaded on last monsoon season though they are not providing us enough water.
    I even dont when they give us water supply.
    I want to know timing how much time they supply water in our area for each day.
    If there is shortage of water i want the reason for the same.
    I also want to know why water is coming mixed with sewage water.
    If I want water tanker from Municipality whom to contact.
    Who is responsible for water shortage.

    Kindly guide me because the summer has started & as my opinion they have tie up with local water tanker association so they can also earn money due to artificial water shortage.

    Pls let me know how to frame this question.
    As soon as possible.............

    It is advisable to file detailed complaint with Municipal Commissioner by you jointly with other residents of the area. After one month file RTI by referring:

    Can you provide water tanker free due to shortage of water from Municipality pipeline? If yes whom to contact for the same.
    My suggestion:

    a. Does dept supply free water tankers in areas where there is shortage of water supply from MC, please provide copy of rules/any official document applicable in this regard.

    b. Name, designation and official phone and mobile no of the officer who can be contacted for free tanker (in case of shortage) , if officers have been appointed areawise, please provide details accordingly.

    c. Kindly read: GUJARAT RTI RULES/FORMATS - Guide
