    MAHARSHTRA should start metering the water for every consumer, make water meters mandatory, let the user pay for what he consumes. The PMC guidelines says 135 ltrs of water per person and 5 persons per flat i.e 675 ltrs of water/ day consumption but nowadays we are not getting enough water itself for reasons: PMC has got an unwritten rule that Society's with 1-6 flats will be given 1/2 " pipe water connection 7-12 flats society will be given 3/4" connection so on and so forth but due to low pressure in the main water pipe the 2-3 hrs of supply time is not enough to provide the 135 ltrs / person. Hence water metering will help in charging tariff as per the usage of water by user.
