Note that there were some media reports around quality and leakage issues with some water dams reported in August 2016. Water leakage videos were shown in media on some of these dams.


Even after media reports, the action was not taken to satisfactory level. The time-frame for the RTI was around January 2017.


Looking at the safety of people residing in Pune district, it became very important that the necessary actions are taken in fixing the issues regarding Quality and Leakage issues with Water Dams.



Attached are the responses my RTI Application.
