Mysore, July 20 (KMC&HT)- A booklet about the 24x7 water supply project for Mysore city undertaken by the Jamshedpur Utilities and Services Company (JUSCO) under the JNNURM project, was released by Mayor Sandesh Swamy at a formal function at the Town Hall here last evening.

The 12-page booklet prepared by JUSCO in association with the Vani Vilas Water Works (VVWW) and Karnataka Urban Water Supply and Drainage Board (KUWS&DB), is aimed at eradicating misconceptions about the JUSCO project.

In the first phase, two lakh booklets have been printed and they will be distributed among the citizens through the Department of Posts on July 25, that is 200 Postmen from 26 Post Offices in city will distribute booklets in a single day.

JUSCO claims to provide 24x7 water supply to five wards of MCC by the end of this month and extend similar services to rest of the 62 wards of the city in the next two years.

Sandesh Swamy, speaking on the occasion, said that there were more than 70,000 authorised water connections in the city and approximately 35,000 unauthorised connections, which will be regularised in phases. "As such, the JUSCO project, undertaken at a total cost of Rs. 200 crore, may require an additional grant of Rs. 50 crore," he said and added that water supply connections will be provided to all the citizens under the project.

The booklet contains information about installing multijet class B meter free of cost for every connection, only one water connection per property title-deed, billing on the quantity of water used, concessions to water consumers as decided by the MCC, billing every month and meters to be installed after regularising the unauthorised connections.
