A press release from the government agency said the meeting would be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the presence of senior officials. During the previous meeting held last month, the agency received 88 complaints. Of them, 83 were redressed.
The meetings in the coming weeks are likely to draw more consumers, as Metrowater's piped supply has been dwindling. Though the water agency says it has been supplying the normal quantum on alternate days, the water has stopped flowing in many sumps, forcing residents to resort to handpumps or even go in for paid supply of Metrowater.
Consumers in many zones said they planned to attend the meeting on Saturday and lodge protests about the decline in supply. Unlike in past years, the regulations cited for groundwater drawal have placed a premium on private tanker supply. This has placed the emphasis on supply squarely on the official agency.
