Chandigarh: Sector 38 resident fumes over hefty water bill

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 30

A resident of Sector 38 has expressed his despair over a ‘hefty’ water bill he received from the Municipal Corporation (MC).

Sanjeev Raina, a resident of Sector 38 (West), said his water consumption used to be 100 to 117 kilolitre (kl) per bill (Rs800 to Rs1,200 usually). The recent bill, dated July 12, amounting to Rs32,420 for 1,370 kl of water consumption, was issued by the MC.

“Yesterday, I visited Chief Engineer NP Sharma. He directed me to meet the Superintending Engineer who further directed me to meet the SDO and so on... Nobody responded. After wasting the whole day, I came back without any result,” he alleged.

Today was the last day to pay the bill and there was a penalty of Rs3,242 for late payment, he said.
