This practice has continued over the years, but today the length of the queue for the tanker has only increased. Residents in Vijaynagar village in Mahadevapura stuffing pots into an auto en-route to collect water from BBMP tankers. The plight is the same for the population of 11,03, according to census report people inhabiting the villages area.
The sq km area comprises of 23 villages in Mahadevapura, 17 villages in RR Nagar, 26 in Byatarayanapura, 33 in Bommanahalli and 11 in Dasarahalli. This was kept in cold storage as Stage IV was underway.
Four years later, not much has changed. During a progress-review meeting held on May 26, at the BWSSB head office, senior officials took note of the initiatives and hiccups in supplying water to the newly added villages.

If this runoff water is not trapped and groundwater aquifers not recharged, the scenario would indeed become bleak.

Venkatraju says that out of the one lakh houses in the constituency, only about 10, are getting water from Stage IV now. Experts lament this strange logic. In the loop system, the supply lines are set up in a closed system and there are no open ends.
The other half of the water was lost because of leakages and illegal connections.
A BWSSB engineer says, on condition of anonymity, that unaccounted water is higher than usual now, as more water is lost due to testing and trial runs for Cauvery Stage IV.
Why are residents not applying for Cauvery connections?

This has been going on for a while, but is not being done in a large scale as it is also a difficult job; the intention is to get people to apply soon. Once the line is disconnected, the house owner will have to get the connection laid again at his own cost, after taking road cutting permission from BBMP.
The deadline for public to take new connections was January 15th, which was then extended to February 15th, and now has been stretched to March 15th, as per news reports.
