After the hike in the power tariff, the Kerala government is all set to increase the water tariff.
The state minister for Water Resources , K.Krishnankutty has informed this the media. As the Kerala Water authority is facing severe financial crisis, there is no other option other than to increase the tariff, the minister said to media. The increase in power tariff also will increase the expenses of the water authority. This will make the financial crisis of authority worse.
Water tariff in the state has increased in 2009 for the last time. Earlier the government has declined the water authorities request to increase the tariff. But as the power tariff has increased the water tariff may be increased.
