Hyderabad: Water Board officials have appealed to applicants not to additional amounts for existing connections. This follows information that some persons were demanding money to help existing consumers get a water connection under Mission Bhagiratha.

The Water Board said Mission Bhagiratha was aimed at providing drinking water to households that do not have a water connection and was not for existing customers. 

 

According to sources, some miscreants had used the name of Water Board officials and demanded Rs 40,000 per each connection in Manikonda to give a Urban Mission Bhagiratha connection. The residents have water connections for which they had paid Rs 30,000 to the Water Board earlier. 

Asked about the complaints, a senior official said the Water Board would not collect any money from existing customers. The board would only collect charges for new water connections. He appealed to consumers to alert the Water Board if anyone approached them for additional charges.
