The authority has set up special inspection teams to keep an eye on how people use water and fine them if they do things like waste water or wash their cars when they don’t need to. The authority has also raised the limit for repeat offenders from PKR 5,000 to more than PKR 25,000. In this case, the authority has given inspection teams permission to send challans for repeat offenders to the CDA magistrate so that the penalty can be changed. In a statement, the authority said that the decision to raise the fine was made because people keep breaking the law about wasting water in wealthy areas where fines can be paid.

Islamabad has the worst water shortage because it doesn’t have a reliable source of groundwater. The authority recently gave permission to the Federal Government Employee Housing Authority (FGEHA) to build a missing link in the 1.2-kilometer water line from Shah Allah Ditta to Sector G. The project will give the people in the surrounding areas 1.2 million gallons of water (MGWD).
