Smart water meters, the need of the hour 15.2.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
There is a growing water crisis across the world, evident through the droughts in summers. As rivers are drying up, there are millions of people who have no access to fresh water in the country as well. And, with the summer approaching, water shortage will be a key concern in Bengaluru. In an urban setup, an average Indian household, with a family of four, consumes about 1,000 litres of water every day. The World Health Organization (WHO)-prescribed water consumption is 150 litres per person per day, which translates to 600 litres per day.

But, this doesnt happen and most apartment complexes charge a fixed flat water fee to their residents. Even if the water consumption is different for each household, the bill is calculated by dividing the number of households by the total cost of water incurred by the ...
