It is mentioned that 35% of the total cost incurred for the production and distribution process of water is spent on electricity.
The NWSDB says it has to bear high costs for these activities due to the huge electricity tariff hike and as a result, the water tariffs will also be increased.
However, the NWSDB also emphasized that no decision has been taken at the administrative level to increase the water tariffs.
There are about 3 million water consumers in the country at present, whereas 92% of them are domestic consumers and 8% are non-domestic consumers.
