Thumbs up Water ATM in Bangalore. 10 liters for a buck!

Not just rice for a rupee, but in Bangalore, you can also get clean drinking water (10 liters!) for a rupee!!

Neat initiative by the Govt of Karnataka and the Kanakapura constituency!!

"The Indian rupee may be crashing globally, but in a suburb in Banglore, just Rs. 1 can fetch ten litres of clean drinking water. And the facility comes without hassles of standing in long queues. Kanakapura has got what locals call, 'Water ATMs'.

"The water quality is good. Earlier we drank borewell water, which was hard and contaminated. This is way better. For my family of five, we easily need 20 litres a day for drinking and cooking," says Jeyamma, a labourer, who inserts two one-rupee coins at one of the water kiosks in the area, and the massive utensil she is carrying, is filled with water in minutes.

Thirty-three such water kiosks, each costing Rs. 12 to 13 lakh, have been set up in the Kanakapura constituency, which is represented by two brothers - MP DK Suresh and MLA DK Shivakumar."
