“Functioning of the water ATMs would be ensured in three ways. The municipality would install water ATMs and ensure that these functions properly, or the civic body would install it and hand it over to an agency for its smooth functioning. Corporate social responsibility would also be available, to ensure functioning of water ATMs,” the minister said. Jain said the distance between two water ATMs would be 400 metres, which could be adjusted, according to the convenience of people.
