The houses in the original villages in the municipal area as well as the houses in the slums have increased manifold. But water was supplied to these houses only from the taps taken for the original house. Also in the slum areas only one bill was being collected. But the municipality has conducted a survey in this regard and under the 8 division offices of Navi Mumbai city slums and villages are being brought under the ambit of water meters and due to this the water supply department of the municipality has given the possibility of increasing the water bill of the municipality by almost 1 crore in two months. In the original villages, large buildings have been built on the site of one house, there is a picture of many rooms being built and rented out. But water was supplied to many houses from the same tap taken for the original house. Also water theft started. That type is going to stop. Therefore, the income of the municipality is going to increase as the municipality stops 100 percent water consumption by stealing and free. The pre-2011 slums as well as post-2011 slums with 5 to 15 houses will be supplied with water through taps. So now the income of the municipality will increase.
