Welfare bodies oppose water tariff hike

Chandigarh, October 14

The Federation of Sector Welfare Associations Chandigarh (FOSWAC), an umbrella organisation of 60 resident welfare associations, today protested the hike in water tariff by the Municipal Corporation.

All RWAs have termed it as unilateral and unjustified action by the civic body. They had urged the UT Administrator, through a letter on February 9, to review the decision. The water supply was inadequate and needs improvement before any hike in water tariff. Leakage in supply lines and illegal non-metered supply to the colonies need to be plugged, they said.

"The water pipes are more than 50 years old and of less carrying capacity which is not enough to meet the increasing water requirement of the city," said Baljinder Singh Bittu, FOSWAC president. — TNS
