Karnataka Urban Water Supply and Sewerage Board (KUWSSB) took a break for its annual maintenance work all of a sudden and for the fourth day in a row many parts of the city did not get any water.
KUWSSB was supplying water once in three days to the city barring the 24×7 wards, but even the 24×7 wards have been affected.
The annual maintenance is being carried out for pipeline repair works and patching the leakages at Hidkal. Taking stock of this grave situation the private water suppliers are making swift money. They charged Rs. 500 for one tanker of water when the normal rate is between Rs. 350 and Rs. 400.
Hopefully, water supply would be restored by Saturday morning.
