Residents of India’s Bengaluru plagued by water shortage, rising living costs

India’s Bengaluru is experiencing severe water scarcity ahead of peak summer, leading to water rationing and increased prices, Reuters reported.

According to the article published yesterday, weak monsoon rains have depleted groundwater and reservoir levels, causing residents to pay higher prices for water tankers. Meanwhile, locals are concerned the situation may worsen, suspecting vendors not being able to meet growing demand.

The city’s reliance on water from the Cauvery River and the impact of rapid development, including the loss of water bodies and green cover, are contributing to the crisis, but authorities are seeking additional water sources to address the impending shortage.
