Drinking water supplied by Mysore City Corporation (MCC) to residents in city through tankers is absolutely free. MCC Commissioner P.G. Ramesh has advised the residents to refrain from offering any tips to the tanker drivers.

Speaking to SOM here yesterday, Ramesh said that several private water tanker owners were exploiting the situation by charging exorbitant prices for water. He appealed to the residents to seek water tankers of MCC. He expressed surprise as to how private tankers were supplying water as MCC had stopped offering water to them from Vani Vilas Water Works (VVWW). He said that they could be drawing water from private borewells or some unknown source which could endanger the lives of the people.
