In the absence of connections, most of them forced to rely on borewells. Resident of an apartment at Pendurti is worried about meeting his water needs in summer much before the onset of the season. While the builder had tried to dig three bore-wells, only one produced water and the other two failed. Added to that, in the vicinity several bore-wells have come up. He is living in an apartment complex comprising four blocks and none of them is completed. Of 100 units, about 60 have been occupied. Though most of the apartments are learnt to have been sold, painting, fixing of taps and other minor works are going on in them. With many borewells in the vicinity, I am worried about how the situation will be in the months ahead, let alone the 24-hour supply promised by the builder,” said the resident who sought anonymity for apparent reasons. Besides all the flat-owners have to pay about 10000 each 5000 towards fee to GVMC and the remaining for other expenses if the semi-bulk water connection usually given to apartments is to be issued. With number of owners involved and work still going on that is also a time-taking task.

These lead to the fares increasing without any justification. In the past passengers have had to brave the auto rickshaw owners and heavy luggage to exit the place and look for signal strength to book a cab. Not any more!! Coming sooner rather than later, the cab aggregator stand will be on the premises. It is started by the Waltair Railway Division. The Ministry is planning to provide the requisite space for 25 cabs to start with and kiosk facility as well. The feasibility study is underway for this at both Visakhapatnam and Bhubaneswar railway Stations. The last date for the tender is November 6. Whoever gets the contract will have it for 1 year and the tender value is 1.75 crores.
