Water Meters should be made mandatory in Individual Apartments in Residential Apartments.
Water Meter Installation should be made mandatory in all the residential apartments in all the housing societies.
Household in apartments pay a fixed water bill irrespective of the amount of water each unit consumes. Smart water meters in Individual household can record,store and transmit water consumption data to house owners , allowing them to see how much they are consuming.
At present this meter installation in individual household is optional and not mandatory. Making it mandatory can go a long way in Saving / Conserving this precious resource.
