Why are people so afraid of water being privatized? Are they afraid that they would now have to pay additional for water? Are their fears even valid?
The simple and undeniable truth is that those who fear water privatization are yet to grasp its benefits and financial assistance’s it provides.
So why do people have such a baseless and unwarranted fear?
Companies like Vishvaraj Infrastructure Limited (VIL) who were recently present at India Water Week know not only of the importance of water privatization and its benefits, but also its potential of making India great.
Let’s head on down to Nagpur where the city pumps 540 million litres of water every single day, but only 140 million litres is accounted for. This leaves the state at a loss of 400 million litres. Today, VIL’s role in supplying 24×7 water supply at Nagpur in eight areas, has benefited the lives of 2,04,262 citizens.
For those who fear, must understand private entities like VIL, would play a big part in the installations of tap water connections in all houses. They could create systems for metering them.
VIL provides global solutions that contribute to sustainable development in the water sector through innovation in the design, construction and operation of drinking water treatment plants, distribution system reforms, etc.
