Water from tank is pumped into the tanker. Each tanker has a capacity of 10,000 litres. 

For every trip that the tanker makes, the tanker company pays Rs 600 to owner of the land with the bore

Borewell on ‘Khatwa lake’ in the village. A portion of this lake is being filled up in order to construct the outer ring road.
