The Belgaum City Corporation on Monday, unanimously adopted a resolution to implement new tariff for water connections under the 24×7 drinking water supply scheme in the city.
The new tariff will be effective in the 10 wards only having the 24×7 water supply.

Opposition members, who strongly opposed the proposal, said that people were already overburdened with inflation and price rise. It was not fair on the part of the civic body to impose additional burden on them. See this link for a complete understanding of the tariff structure already posted on this blog.
