Answer :

a. The drinking water in the area is supplied by the municipality through reservoir, pumps or bore well.


b. Monthly payment is done for the water supply at homes.


c. In farmlands, the farmers or the owners dig the pumps and provide the water supply for irrigation to the nearby farmers.
