Four hundred fifty water meters have successfully been installed in the city of Kapil Gram Panchayat, 300 kilometers southeast of Mumbai. The city has a population of 5000 people and becomes the first city in India to get ultrasonic waters meters installed.
Before getting a Kamstrup meter the consumer was charged at bulk rate. There were no limitations on how much water could be consumed and how much to waste. By adding a metering system, consumers are now aware that it is better to consume less and pay less. In other words they save costs that directly impact their pocket.
