After receiving a resounding success at railway stations, the water ATMs will be installed at public spots across the city. If everything goes as per the plan, Mumbaikars might get water from these 'ATMs' at a very low cost at public spots across the city.

According to reports, BMC chief Praveen Pardeshi has ordered all the ward officers to identify five spots in their area where the water vending machines can be set up to provide drinking water to citizens. More importantly, the citizens will be able to receive water by paying a minimal cost.

Currently, the municipal corporation is awaiting a nod from its legal department to figure out the legalities for implementing the move. Once the approval is received, BMC will decide on the number of spots and float tenders accordingly. The water to be provided to these machines will be supplied by the BMC.

However, according to a news report, there have been around 2,500 water drinking facilities that have been shut by BMC over the last decade and now they are bringing the same concept back by charging the citizens.
