It may be recalled that the KUWSDB was charging retrospectively arrears of Rs.1742/-.The corporation has already passed resolution No38 dated 17.11.2014 for the collection of the arrears.
Now the members opposed this collection and the mayor gave a ruling that until meters are installed the collection of these arrears cannot happen.
This could affect the expansion of the 24×7 water supply project to all the 58 wards also this would impact the smart city challenge.
