How much are you paying for your tanker water?

Check how much people in Bengaluru are paying for a tanker of water, and share how much do you pay!

Citizen Matters is creating a map to track the amount of money people of Bengaluru spend on water tankers in the city.

This map aims to give information about water tanker rates across the city of Bangalore. This will also give an insight into the availability (or lack of) water in these areas. If someone is charging you heavily, you will know it by looking at the map. Click on a map pin and the relevant information for that area will pop up.

Also the map will show how much people are paying in another area. You can compare the price, and identify the areas with water shortage, where the price will naturally be high. It will help increase water sensitivity, and has the potential to increase competition among vendors in the same area.

Some of the information in the map was collected from attendees of the Water Workshop for Apartment Complexes organised by ApartmentADDA on June 21st 2014, in which Citizen Matters was the Community Media Partner.

We are crowd-sourcing information from our readers as well. If you have any information that you would like to share with us regarding water tankers and pricing, please enter the same in the form given on the left of the map. The data you share will be added to the map.

The Smart City Advisory Forum was convened in Chennai only 5 times since 2016, showing minimal participation by elected representatives.

Chennai is among the first few cities to get selected under the Smart City Mission programme in 2016. As many as 48 projects under different categories were taken up under the scheme. With only a couple of projects left to be completed, isn't Chennai supposed to look 'smart' now? The much-hyped Central government scheme, launched in 2014, was envisioned to build core infrastructure and evolve 'smart' solutions that would make cities more livable and sustainable. But, a decade since, the reality on the ground may be a little different. While some of the facilities provided under these projects are under-utilised,…

Scenes from a community walk in Mumbai

When I moved to Mumbai, the city felt extremely 'walkable,' but a walking tour in Dadar broadened my definition of walkability.

When I moved to Mumbai in June 2023 for work, I found myself going for sight seeing to the city's tourist destinations. Though the city appeared to have consistent and wide footpaths almost everywhere, vehicular right of way seemed to be prioritised over the pedestrian right of way. This struck me as very strange, even as I continued to enjoy walking through lanes of Mumbai very much. On one hand, there is excellent footpath coverage, utilised by large crowds everywhere. On the other hand, speeding vehicles create obstacles for something as simple as crossing the road.  "Though Mumbai appeared to…
