Rising prices of water tank in Bengaluru

Bengaluru is going through an acute water shortage this year, months before peak summer, forcing many residents in "India's Silicon Valley" to ration their water use and pay almost double the usual price to meet their daily needs, according to a report by Reuters.

Weak southwest monsoon rains have dented groundwater levels and declined water levels in the Cauvery River basin reservoirs that feed the southern Indian city, which is home to roughly 14 million people and thousands of IT companies and start-ups, the report added.

That is making residents of the city pay surging prices for water tankers even before the onset of peak summer.

Water tanker dealers have started charging residents in some parts of Bengaluru as much as 2,000 rupees ($24.11) for a 12,000-litre tanker, versus 1,200 rupees ($14.47) a month earlier, according to interviews with a dozen customers.

"We now need to book water tankers two days in advance, my plants are dying and I'm taking alternate-day showers," said Santhosh C.A., a resident of Horamavu, in north Bengaluru, as quoted by Reuters.
