Tanker water rates across Bengaluru, February 2015

In February 2015 we collected data from citizens on how much they were paying for tanker water. Here are the results.

Though Bengaluru’s weather has been a tad moody the past couple of days, it is common knowledge that come summer, as the temperatures rise, so will the water tanker prices.

Earlier this year, Citizen Matters had assisted in collecting data for a joint study between a student from MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning, and IIM Bangalore’s New Real Estate initiative on the water tanker industry in Bangalore. Here are the results from the survey.

This map aims to give information about water tanker rates across the city of Bangalore, and an insight into the availability (or lack of) water in these areas. Click on a map pin and the relevant information for that area will pop up.

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.If someone is charging you heavily, you will know it by looking at the map.&nbsp

We are also looking to track the variation in pricing with seasons. You can also share any information regarding water tankers and pricing, by filling the form below. The data you share will be added to the map.

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…
