BWSSB Data collection form

The data that we will ask from BWSSB on a regular basis. I think this is too much in detail, we will have to shorten up a bit. But it is a very nice starting point. So lets get the ball rolling.

"Learn your way" campaign - Participant Registration

Please reach out to the web link below at Eventbrite for registering yourself for the upcoming events within the "Learn your way" campaign.


Incremental List of Parameters

The following is an incremental list of the parameters we plan to track as part of the water index. We shall continue to add parameters until we finalise a stable index.

Request Praja members to review this list, focusing on
* Any broad category that has not been covered.
* Any parameter that has been left out.


To add to the list,

edit this wiki page and enter your suggested parameter(s) under the sixth category (Additonal Parameters). Please enter clear and concise parameters/descriptions. Rap on the knuckles for vagueness. :)


The first five categories form the initial list. Additonal parameters suggested by Praja members form the 6th category:

1. Pipe Water

    a. Hours of Supply

    b. Coverage - Percentage of households having a bwssb connection.

    c. Unaccounted for Water- Calculated by measuring the amount of water that BWSSB bills to the amount of water that it supplies.

Online Store of GOK Unrepealed Acts

Found this online store, linking soft-copies of un-repealed acts of GOK. Yes, I did rub my eyes to make sure I wasn't dreaming. 

Not sure where to post it, category or Tags to use. Admins, feel free to classify this post as you deem fit.

For the record, got to this website thru' 'Acts & Rules' link on GOK-UDD Home Page

Honking Horror of Vehicles

I could see off late many vehicles especially Two Wheelers and the new car drivers seems to be in a great hurry on the road, they simply Honk for no reason and they honk on police signals, as if with their honk the singal is going to fall green and they can move.

Such attitude on the road is really disturbing people and other drivers on the road, which is unwarranted. Pls Honk only when it is required, otherwise enjoy riding, by hearing an FM with headphones or in your car audio and drive. If you see anybody honking behind you especially an call centre vehicle's pls allow him to go, so that he doesn't create more noise pollution.
