Goa CAG Rs. 77 Crore Revenue Loss 35% drinking water unaccounted

As per the guidelines specified by the Union Ministry of Urban Development, the unbilled or unaccounted water should not exceed 15 per cent of the total supply.

According to the CAG report (2012-13) tabled during the ongoing session of state Legislative Assembly the report said that “Considering the rates applicable to various categories of consumers, revenue lost for unaccounted water, excluding the permissible limit of 15 per cent, works out at Rs 77.37 crore during the year 2012-13 itself

An average 35 per cent of drinking water in Goa in 2012-13 was “unaccounted” for, leading to a revenue loss of Rs 77 crore to the state exchequer.

The unaccounted water represents difference between the quantity of water that is supplied from the water treatment plants and of the quantity measured at the consumer point.
