State minister for water resources Ajit Pawar on Friday said that the city's water needs could be fulfilled with 7.5 TMC (thousand million cubic feet) water.He has instructed elected members and officials of the Pune Municipal Corporation to carry out a detailed survey of the city for equitable water distribution.
Pawar later told media persons that he has asked the officials and the elected representatives to identify an agency within a week to conduct a survey on the current water distribution in the city.
Leaders from all political parties in the civic body along with the mayor agreed that there was no equitable distribution of water in the city. "I was told by the irrigation department officials that 12 to 13 TMC of water is supplied to the city while the civic officials said the city receives around 11 to 12 TMC water.
