Bottled water companies pay 60 paise/litre for M’puzha water

Palakkad: Even as there is an acute scarcity of water for drinking and agricultural purposes, private companies which peddle bottled water are guzzling water from Malampuzha dam, that too at a throwawy rate, thanks to the government-run Kerala Water Authority. They pay a measley sixty paise per litre for the precious resource, which they in turn sell to consumers for re. 20! Considering the scorching summer, KWA had decided not to sell water so cheap. Forseeing this, the companies paid the cost for May also in advance. Because of this, KWA is bound to honour the commitment. At the same time, because of the new stipulation KWA cannot provide water to those suffering water distress.
