Water Supply Problem

Question

sarohacbe

Dear Sir,

 

I am living in K.G. Chavadi, Coimbatore (Tamilnadu), Here drinking water supply once in a month for 2-4 hrs maximum and normal water supply is not in the frequent order and water supply is in the gape of 7-15 days for 2-4 hrs.

 

The above water supply is not enough for our residential area people and people are forced to buy the water from outside. We are spending Rs.500-1000/- every month for both water purchase.

 

I want to know the exact water supply schedule for my area.

 

Thanks & Regards,

 

Rajkumar Singh Saroha

If your area is under the Municipal Corporation or if you have the supply from Water Board, then you can file a RTI application with the PIO of that office and ask for the water supply timings to your area.

You can also ask for supply timings to other areas near your colony.

 

The details of the PIO will be available on the website of that public authority.

If it is not available, please call up that office and ask them "Who is the PIO in your office under the RTI Act ? I want to file a RTI Application"

 

 

Your RTI Application has to be as per the RTI Rules and Fees for Tamil Nadu.

These are available in the Guide section of the Portal: RTI Guide

 

Please read the other articles in the Guide section as well as the links given in the FAQ here: RTI FAQ

 

These will be of help to you during the RTI process.

If you have not received the reply to your RTI application within the 30 days, then it is called deemed denial of information.

 

You have to now file first appeal to the first appellate authority within 30 days (or 60 days of the date of your application).

 

A general first appeal format for deemed denial is available here: http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/attachments/ask-rti-query/2057d1272605984-rti-help-regarding-final-settlement-central-govt-employee-general-first-appeal-deemed-refusal-information.doc

 

You can use it after suitable modifications for your case.

Follow the suggestion in post # 2 above.

You will have to follow the RTI Rules and Fees for Maharashtra (instead of Tamil Nadu)

      As reported at www.expressindia.com on 14 March 2009
       
      Chandigarh The District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum has directed the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation to pay Rs 15,000 as compensation for sending inflated water bills to a consumer. The MC has also been directed to refund Rs 5,000 charged in excess and another Rs 5,000 as costs of litigation.
      Sunita Sanghi, a resident of Sector 21, said she received a water bill, allegedly inflated by Rs 776, in August 2005. On inquiry, she was told that the bill was based on the actual consumption of water but Sanghi averred that in the following bimonthly cycle, her bill was comparatively low. However, Sanghi received “highly inflated” bills for April, June and August 2006, amounting to Rs 4,338 and Rs 1,609 respectively. Sanghi later deposited Rs 65 for the checking of her meter, which was found in working order. She was, however, informed that there could be a leak in the underground pipe following which she approached the CPWD. The pipeline was also found satisfactory.
      Thereafter, Sanghi said she wrote numerous letters to the MC authorities seeking rectification of the bills. She also sought information under the RTI Act and found that no meter had been installed on the ground floor of her house till June 16, 2006. She apprehended that the excessive bill was on account of unauthorised use of water by the occupant on the ground floor and the averred that the bills could have been issued to her in connivance with the occupant. She then moved the consumer forum. In its reply, the MC said the billing was done according to the actual consumption of water only. Announcing the verdict, the forum said the MC had stated in its reply that the meter was installed in April 2004 only, even though the application for installation of a meter was given in May 2002. “This stand is contradicts the information supplied to the complainant under the RTI Act,” it stated. The forum also said that the sudden spurt in the bill for the month of February 2006 is unexplainable. Similarly, the other bills of the months ending April, June and August 2006 are also inflated.

      I stay in bandra (W) and our society has told us that there is a 25 to 30% water cut in the BMC water supply. We have never faced this sort of problem in the past 6 years since we have shofted here. Moreover there is no such apparent problem with any other buildings in our lane.
       
      I would like to know that actual fact of the matter
       
      Regards
