BHOPAL MUNICIPAL Corporation (BMC) administration appears to have two sets of norms – one  set for VIPs and another for others, when it comes to water supply. So, it seems from the way the corporation supplies water to the VIPs at Char Imli through overhead tank thus enabling them to get far more than adequate water.

For the past many years, the corporation has been making available water through this overhead tank to the VIPs living in B, C, D and E type bungalows.

Interestingly, this facility is not extended to officials living in F-type government quarters in the same locality. It was done for the proper supply in these bungalows.

“We are providing water to the B, C, D and E type bungalows through overhead tank at Char Imli. The F-type quarters get supply directly through the Kolar supply system during the morning hour. It results in low pressure water supply in F-type quarters,” said Subodh Jain, Assistant Engineer, BMC, monitoring the water supply in the area.

Sources said it was done some years back to ensure more than required supply to bungalows. According to an official, these bungalows get more than 1,200 litre per capita per day (LPCD) while the supply in many areas of the City remains less than 50 LPCD.

When asked, BMC Commissioner Manish Singh said that he was not aware of the fact. Singh said that it might have been done due to pressure management of pipeline. Mayor Sunil Sood, however, said that he would inquire into the matter.
