Bangalore: All newly added urban localities of the Bangalore City Corporation would get regular drinking water supply under second stage of the fourth phase of the Cauvery project from September-end.
Minister for Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) S Suresh Kumar, who also holds the urban development and law and parliamentary affairs portfolios, told reporters that about two lakh households would get water connections.
A decision had been taken not to levy road cutting fee on households seeking water connections in the newly added wards of the Corporation, he said. The greater Bangalore was created in 2007 by merging seven city municipal councils, one town municipal councils and 110 villages with the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). He said residents of newly added urban areas to the BBMP, except 110 villages, would get 500 million litres per day (MLD) of Cauvery water from September-end.
