Survey: How much do you pay for water in Bangalore?

Fill this survey and qualify for a lucky draw in which you could win four PVR Cinema tickets! You will also be helping map the cost of water in Bengaluru.

Anirudh Rajashekar, a student from MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning, alongwith IIM Bangalore’s New Real Estate initiative, is conducting a study to map out water tanker prices in Bangalore to understand the dynamics of the water tanker industry. Their hope is to provide policy recommendations that might improve water access in Bangalore.

If you live in an apartment, you can fill this short 15 minute survey to your resident association officer or a member of your management committee. The results of this survey can have a major positive impact in the way water is distributed and managed in Bengaluru. The personal information collected will remain confidential, but the results of the survey and conclusions will be shared publicly by MIT, IIM Bangalore and Citizen Matters.

As a gesture of our appreciation, three lucky respondents will receive four complimentary tickets each to PVR cinemas. Lucky draw winners will be announced after the completion of the survey, post February 20th 2015.
