Sindh Government to Install Meters for Underground Water Usage in Karachi

Karachi: The Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) has issued a notification mandating the installation of water meters for the extraction and use of groundwater in Karachi, aligning the policy with the existing metering system for electricity.

According to media reports, a notification has been issued stating that, like electricity, water will also be metered. The municipal government will monitor the extraction, use, and sale of water from the ground.

The notification specifies that the decision will apply to corporations, commercial enterprises, hotels, educational institutions, residential complexes, societies, cooperative societies, apartments, flats, and high-rise buildings.

The new regulation, which will take effect from August 1, 2024, will require citizens and industries within the Karachi Division and its surrounding areas to install digital meters to monitor and regulate groundwater usage. This decision was announced by Karachi Mayor Murtaza Wahab during a meeting with the Council of Economic and Energy Journalists.

According to the notification, only individual residential homes will have free use of underground water. The process of installing digital meters to prevent water theft in industrial areas will begin on August 1.
