Water tariff rationalisation in Kerala Water Authority
conference contributionposted on 12.02.2018, 15:08 by V.K. Girijavallabhan
The Government of Kerala has rationalised the drinking water tariff applicable to consumers of Kerala Water Authority, with effect from 01.09.2008. The Water Tariff revision has been adopted with a clear-cut rationale drawn up based on national and international experience modifying it suitably to the specific requirements of the state of Kerala as well as with a view to ensure sustainability of services. While the sustainability of the institution and service is of primary importance, equal importance has been provided to address the issues of low income and poor population in accessibility to drinking water. It is expected that after the tariff rationalisation, the Kerala Water Authority would be able to meet all its operation and maintenance expenditure and this would contribute to sustainable service delivery.
