Private Water Tankers Survey – February 2024

June 20, 2024 Vaidya R in collaboration with Bangalore Apartments’ Federation (BAF), conducted a survey private water tankers in Bengaluru. The goal of the survey was to understand the demand for water in different parts of the city, how they are met, and where they are dependent on private tankers, how much they are paying for the service.

The survey results were covered by the media and eventually led to the State Government capping the rates of private tankers and making it mandatory for private water tankers to register with the government.
