With no pre-monsoon showers so far, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) faces allegations of an undeclared water cut in the city. “While releasing extra water from the dams, the guardian minister had assured citizens that there would not be any additional water cuts in Pune. But undeclared water cuts seem to have begun already. We are now getting lesser water in our area. May be the situation is similar in other areas too,” said civic activist Prashant Inamdar.

In a communication to municipal commissioner Kunal Kumar, the Sajag Nagrik Manch pointed out that water supply in various parts of the city, especially Kothrud and Peth areas, have reduced. “There seems to be an undeclared water cut being implemented by the civic administration. Thus, the PMC should clarify on the situation,” Inamdar said.

The civic administration said that there is 3.09 TMC water available in Khadakwasla reservoir, which would be sufficient for the next two months even though there was 5.41 TMC water last year on the same day. “The PMC has not undertaken any undeclared water cut. The supply would be closed on Thursday to carry out repair and maintenance work,” said a civic officer, adding that there are predictions of rain in the near future, and hence the situation is likely to improve.
