Online facility increases bookings of water tankers in the Mylapore area

If you need to book a water tanker at Metro Water, check out their online booking facility which was
launched during the first week of March.

G. M. Ramalingam, area engineer, Metro Water, Zone 9 says, “This zone, which includes parts of
Mylapore, Abhiramapuram, R. A. Puram and Mandaveli has registered a sharp increase in the number of bookings since this facility was introduced. Our bookings have increased by 40% and online bookings alone account for almost 100 trips a day. Residents have been logging in after midnight too to make bookings”.

“Once the booking is done, the data can be accessed by both the area engineer and the filling station.
After the booking is confirmed, the tankers will be sent out within 48 hours. In a week we are
hoping to reduce that time gap to 24 hours”, adds Ramalingam.

To make a booking online, residents will need to log onto the website and then enter their registered phone number or consumer number. After the booking is complete, residents will receive an SMS.

In addition to the online service, residents can also book the tankers by calling 45674567.
