Mhow (Madhya Pradesh): The practice of installing free tap connections has been having an adverse impact on the finances of the Cantonment Board.

The board has been losing money for a long time now as it is able to recover just Rs 70 lakh annually as revenue for water supplied to the citizens against an annual expenditure of Rs 5 crore annually. On Thursday, the CEO of the Cantonment Board, Dr. Rajendra Jagtap, issued a release, saying that all citizens using illegal water connections including those using submersible pumps and bore water must give the details of their connections at the Board office and deposit the prescribed fees. The release warned that failing to do so would result in disconnection without notice and a penalty would be recovered from the concerned party.
