The mini Mini borewells had been dug by the RMC but when they are also getting dry the corporation has been forced to supply water in these areas using water tankers. It has become a common sight of people arguing with each other over water.
Despite having a full load capacity of power people had to go through long hours of power cuts. In the evening and in night long power cuts has become a common sight.
In areas such as Ratu Road Khadgada Sukhdeo Nagar and many areas of the state capital, there is also the huge problem of overloading.
