Such a move may have a cascading effect on water availability to consumers in Bengaluru.Bengaluru Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) chairman Tushar Girinath, when contacted by DH, said there was no cause for panic at the moment. However, if the situation turns really bad, consumers may have to face some shortfall in supply.
