Dear Bangalorean, are you law abiding?

We love bashing the government for what it doesn’t do. Have you thought of how you need to only be fully compliant on some simple basic laws that city authorities have already put into place in a city like Bangalore?

Consider just three regulations from the state Pollution Control Board or the Bengaluru Water Supply Board. One is to ensure you harvest rainwater from your roofs for drinking while you harvest the water falling on your land for recharging groundwater.

There’s a second law that insists you have to treat all waste water in your building and reuse it for purposes other than drinking.

There’s a third that mandates fixing water meters with sensors that help you track amount of water you use.

Of course the fourth is a simple gadget that reduces flow of water in your tap while causing you no hassle on use of water.

Why should you comply? Why should you not be one of 100s of apartment associations which will bribe its way into not doing? Or worse, pay penalties of up to 2-3 lacs a month to continue to violate?!
