REALISING THE limitations of the government, the consumer and voluntary organisations working around the State have decided to create a network to work on the strategies for water distribution and contribution in the State.

Representatives of consumer organisations, NGOs and water experts took this decision during a one-day workshop on Sustainable Water Management and Distribution Sensitising Consumers. It was jointly organised by Consumer Unity & Trust Society (CUTS) and Water Sanitation Programme South Asia here on Saturday. They suggested that a different pricing mechanism should be created for the consumers, which should be based on the use of water.
