In 2012, when Vivek Shukla looked into his mailbox to receive the water-bill for his apartment in Bengaluru, he had the last straw.

Month-on-month, Shukla was paying around Rs 2,100 per month for this basic necessity. He recalled that those who tended to gardens were receiving bills with rates as high as Rs 2,300.

“That was a serious amount of money back in 2012. People would complain and start fighting with each other over who used more water,” said Shukla.
