For sewer network in lanes and by-lanes, we are spending money from both MPLADS and MLA and MLC constituency development funds."

GHMC commissioner and HMWS&SB MD Dana Kishore informed TOI, "We spend a few hundred crores on CC roads from GHMC budget. MPLADS is only 25 crore and we have three MPs in the city. We maintain more than 10,000 kilometres of roads in the city." An HMWS&SB reputable stated, "HMWS&SB supplied water is pure. RO plants, while processing water, remove most minerals."
