Sahni said that Jammu and Kashmir has sufficient natural water resources.  By using which drinking water can be made available to the public round the clock at very low cost. Using our water resources, many times more electricity is being generated than the consumption.  Reminding the announcement by Lt Governor in September 2020, the 50 percent discount was announced in electricity and water bills for up to one year.  Setting aside this, the Jammu and Kashmir Water Resources Regulatory Authority has increased the water charges for domestic and commercial consumers by 10 percent from April 2021.
